Unlocking real-world data to promote and protect health and prevent ill-health in the Yorkshire and Humber region

Share:

The Universities of Sheffield, York, and Leeds have joined forces with Local Authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) from the Sheffield and York areas, and the Yorkshire and Humber Care Record (YHCR) to ‘unlock’ the potential of routinely collected real-world data to promote and protect health and prevent ill-health in local and regional settings.

The project’s Principal Investigator (PI), Dr Matthew Franklin (University of Sheffield), sheds some light on why unlocking routine ‘real-world data’ is important, and what needs to be taken into account in order to protect and benefit members of the public – who the data represents.
