New website launched for Clinical and Research Informatics Unit at UCLH

21 September 2020

The Clinical and Research Informatics Unit (CRIU) at UCLH and UCL is excited to announce the launch of its new website.

Hosted on the website of the NIHR UCLH Biomedical Research Centre site, the CRIU pages offer a wealth of information to researchers, clinicians, students and our wider communities about current initiatives and key developments, including the latest news on our COVID-19 related projects.

The goal of this new microsite is to provide visitors with an easy way to learn about our activities and the informatics infrastructure supporting UCLH’s vision to become a data-driven research hospital.

Our website features specific sections on:

-          Data Sources (highlighting CogStack, the natural language processing platform which facilitates retrieval and extraction of information from free-text documents using standardised terminologies)

-          Data Explorer (DEX) (a portal designed to allow UCLH staff to formally request access to patient data)

-          Data Infrastructure (provided by EMAP, a translational data science platform built in and for the NHS and created to support data science)

-          Keytrials (a trials discovery platform underpinning Findastudy.uclh.nhs.uk)

-          Research Impact (showcasing our highly-cited publications, national and international collaborations and cutting-edge research programmes)

-          Your Data: an A-Z (reiterating our commitment to Information Governance and patient engagement in research)

-          Study and Capacity Building and Careers pages.
