Five Research Themes
Over 40 eHealth research projects are split into five research themes:
- Co-produced Health
- Endotype Discovery
- Actionable Healthcare Analytics
- Efficient Trials
- Health eRecord Discovery Science
Running across all of the themes is HeRC’s digital data platform called eInfrastructure.
Please see the information below which more clearly explains what each theme is working towards.
John Ainsworth – Senior Research Fellow in Health Informatics at the University of Manchester
Carole Goble – Professor of Computer Science at the University of Manchester
Goran Nenadic – Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Manchester
HeRC’s advanced methodology for harnessing linkable data, methods and expertise will be delivered through a new online toolkit referred to as eInfrastrucutre.
eInfrastrucutre will extend the eLab concept and software to bring investigators together in a secure on-line environment. The software will codify methodology making it easier to use data through semantic technologies. By consolidating the best of research and existing data warehouses into a single coherent role and embedding methodology it will create distributed sense making of data available maximising its usability.
This will enable users to find, share and reuse the ingredients of real-world healthcare evidence to enable research needs and build information platforms.
- To deliver the methodological advances through software.
- To link bio-statistical and machine learning methodology in a unified digital laboratory (eLab).
- To deploy a network of e-Labs across NHS North localities to cover a 5 million population within 5 years.
