In-sights into data at Moorfields Eye Hospital

Alex Karet of Softwire will ask how Softwire and Moorfields Eye Hospital give medical researchers access to millions of patient scans without compromising patient confidentiality.

They will discuss how they combine these anonymised images with relevant clinical data, explaining their work producing a state-of-the-art research platform. They will highlight how this platform allows researchers to explore the available dataset without granting access to any identifiable patient records. They will mention their work balancing accessibility of the data with the information governance concerns working with personally identifiable health data. They will also explain how this helps produce datasets for HDRUK and the future of health data research in the UK.
