Together with our U.K. partners, we are conducting research and advancing discussions about linked data in health care in the U.K.
We are working with our U.K. partners to develop research programs using anonymized U.S. health care data. Partnering with six prominent research institutions, research will focus on significant challenges faced by the U.K. health system.
Partners are pursuing diverse research areas, ranging from analyzing health system trends in cost and quality, to understanding the effects of policy decisions, to investigating the underlying pathology of disease and comparison of treatment pathways.
Roundtables on data use in the U.K.
We are also collaborating with diverse health system stakeholders to further explore the role of linked health care data in the U.K. This data will help to improve health, care and services through research and planning.
Working with the London School of Economics, we conducted a series of focus groups that explored public attitudes toward the use of data for health care delivery and research. This resulted in a joint publication titled "Improving health with data."
We are now working with our partners and other thought leaders on a program that reimagines the use of data to prevent non-communicable disease. Called the Bazalgette Series, these roundtables focus on developing a data-mature environment to support the U.K. health system.
