Join us for our October Data Access and Discovery event, where we’ll be joined by charities from across the sector who will be discussing their work in this area. We will also be exploring our charity datasets and collections on the HDR Innovation Gateway, so please register using the link below to join us to hear about how health data is being used to make a positive difference.
John Nolan, Senior Health Data Scientist at the British Heart Foundation Data Science Centre will be discussing the work of his health data science team and his CVD-COVID-UK and structured data projects.
The BHF Data Science Centre aims to improve the public’s cardiovascular health through the power of large-scale data and advanced analytics across the UK. The BHF Data Science Centre is a partnership between Health Data Research UK (HDR UK) and the British Heart Foundation (BHF), and sits within HDR UK.
Fiachra Woodman, will also join us, Chief Technology Officer at the Brain Tumour Charity (TBTC), who will talk about their app, Brian, which has revolutionised how patients and carers record PROMS data and collaborate as a community. Brian’s success is the blueprint and inspiration for the platform Medli, connecting and democratising patient health data across the broader health ecosystem and accelerating discovery and analysis with the sole aim of improving patient health and outcomes.
The Brain Tumour Charity (TBTC) is the world’s leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally.
