INSIGHT are focused on eye health and wider health issues connected to the eye, including diabetes and dementia. We will make anonymised, large-scale data, initially from Moorfields Eye Hospital and University Hospitals Birmingham, available for patient-focussed research. The data includes various types of eye imaging and associated patient health records. Using advanced analytics, such as artificial intelligence (AI), INSIGHT will allow researchers to develop new insights in disease detection, diagnosis, treatments and personalised healthcare.
INSIGHT will use the latest digital tools to make existing datasets accessible, bringing scale and efficiency to the collection and curation of anonymised data, and accelerating the benefit to patients. In addition, we aim to measure the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on eye services and help the NHS plan care delivery.
Ultimately, our aim is to transform the way eye disease is diagnosed and managed in the UK and beyond.
