The eLab is a platform for merging data together which has been collected by different groups at different times. The system puts the data into a consistent and clear format.
We believe that harmonised, semantically identical data, is the key to extending and therefore maximising the utility of research data collection. In doing so we increase the lifespan, context and power of expended effort.
eLab is using an acknowledged key interoperability structure to store the data, HL7’s standard; FIHR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources).
