Translational Health Data Science (THDS)
Patient data in a clinical context is at the forefront of world class health informatics. The THDS group has established close collaborations and networks with a wide range of healthcare providers to move towards a learning health system. This system is where knowledge generation processes are embedded in daily practice to produce continual improvements in care. The THDS group is at the interface between academia, hospitals and primary care. Its aims include: identifying the most pressing problems in clinical care and designing innovative data-driven solutions to these problems, in collaboration with clinicians, patients, statisticians, computer scientists and experts in behavioural and implementation science; and building capacity in the analysis of healthcare datasets through training, education and research.
