“Health Data and AI” was highlighted by the NCRI Strategy Advisory Group as a key strategic area for the NCRI to focus on. We have since been working with Health Data Research UK (HDR UK) to explore better ways of facilitating the safe and efficient use of patients’ health data for cancer research.
As part of this work, NCRI has engaged with the cancer research community to establish current experiences of accessing health data, as well as anticipating future needs. We are working with Cancer Research UK (CRUK) on this and you can read about our initial findings in this blog: Barriers to accessing health data for research.
