Title: Utilisation of routinely collected healthcare data to define disease burden and optimal treatment patterns within the international healthcare settings.
Speaker: Sajan Khosla
Venue: Tutorial Room 11, ground floor, Royal Free
Abstract: Routinely collected healthcare data is a term used widely to describe data collected by a healthcare system either for an administrative or clinical surveillance of healthcare. These data show large promise for reuse for clinical research, with the potential to highlight real world observations that occur in natural clinical practice.
This PhD primary focuses its attention on the types of data that are routinely collected and highlights some of the benefits and weaknesses of these different data types, with a focus of how these data have been used to influence a change in clinical practice. The domains of focus have been on ethics and governance, confidentiality, patient awareness and engagement and linkage of data. The important of the reuse of these data for clinical research has been identified as a focus by the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA).  Regulators, industry bodies and academic organisations are actively engaged with the providers of data to understand how these data can be leveraged to guide the approval and use of new treatments. 
This presentation will also cover the applied use of these data to understand how routinely collected health records can be used to gain better insight into disease progression within Type II Diabetes (T2DM) patients. The analysis aims to build on knowledge published in academic literature by investigating well characterised risk factors for micro and macrovascular risk in T2DM patients and adds to this knowledge by investigating which commonly recorded laboratory tests have the ability to enhance these risk factors. I will be presenting some preliminary outputs from the initial descriptive analyses of the T2DM cohort.
