Week of events to celebrate digital transformation at UCLH

20 February 2020

UCLH and UCL staff can find out more about data science happening at the trust and all the tools available to help them at a series of events and courses in March, organised to celebrate the digital transformation of UCLH with the arrival of Epic a year ago.

The UCLH/UCL Clinical and Research Informatics Unit will run 30-minute sessions from 23-26 March to enable staff to learn about:

-          CogStack – Natural Language Processing which helps clinical decision-making

-          Find a Study – a search engine for UCLH clinical trials

-          Data Explorer – the portal for data access requests

-          Slicer Dicer – a reporting tool with customisable search criteria used with Epic

 All staff are welcome to these sessions. Click here to download the full timetable.
