Work on e-Health

The four Partners are engaged in a number of projects/initiatives supporting the LHCRE for TV and Surrey (TVS) building on ICSs and GDEs and outstanding research capacity and capability including 2 BRCs, the Big Data Institute, work in UK-CRIS and other initiatives. Examples of partner engagement include TrueColours, a mobile and web App developed by OxU & OH and the latter is developing Blue Ice Self Harm App with young people. OUH is central to records sharing through Oxfordshire Care Summary (integrates with primary and secondary operational workflows) and contributes to population health management and the establishment of advanced disease registers.

Oxford University is partners with OUH and OH in the two NIHR BRCs which have significant research interests in Big Data, informatics and e-Health platforms across the care boundaries. OH and University of Oxford work on UK-CRIS aiming to development the clinical record into a data asset and research tool for mental health and particularly dementia. OxUni leads IMI-European Medical Information Framework, a €50m public-private partnership. The Big Data Institute (OxU) partners with both NHS Trusts in its work and research focusing on the analysis of large, complex heterogeneous data sets for research into the causes and consequences, prevention and treatment of disease.

Oxford is one of six substantive sites for a Health Data Research Centre, building on its track record with funding from HDRUK. Delivery of Local Digital Roadmaps focuses on records sharing and transfers of care information; patient/citizen facing technology; whole system intelligence, infrastructure and network connectivity and strong information governance. TVS will join up records-sharing; consistency of digital services, Apps and coordinated connection; provide access to large scale population health management capabilities and support leading-edge research. Specific clinical pathways have been chosen relating to Cancer, Maternity and EIP. All partners also working jointly and individual on data/informatics projects with the Oxford AHSN including the Hill to be based at the OUH.
