Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS) are promising to support physicians in finding the right diagnosis of patients with rare diseases (RD). The MIRACUM consortium, which includes ten university hospitals in Germany, will establish a diagnosis support system for RD. This system conducts a similarity analysis on distributed clinical data with the aim to identify similar patient cases at each MIRACUM site to offer the physician a hint to a possible diagnosis.
