How HDR UK accelerated their data onboarding time.
Healthcare researchers across the UK have an enormous amount of under-utilised data that could be used to transform people’s lives. The biggest barriers to using that data in research are finding what data is available and how to access it.
HDR’s network includes 7 health data hubs, 25 Alliance members and 48 better care members. The challenge was to understand the data landscape across these organisations and create a sustainable process that harvested metadata from the organisations to ensure visibility and quality as the project progressed.
