On the day (Tuesday September 12) of the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN) Digital Summit which took place at the Botanical Gardens, NHS Digital announces its partnership with the University of Oxford, Microsoft and IBM.
NHS Digital is working with the University of Oxford, Microsoft and IBM to develop a new hub that aims to revolutionise the way in which clinical trials are delivered – providing foundation services to determine whether a clinical trial is feasible, and to support better planning and delivery of clinical trials in the UK.
The clinical trials hub is one of seven new hubs announced yesterday, which will enable cutting-edge research for health discoveries to benefit UK patients.
The hubs are a ‘first of their kind’ in the world, aimed to improve lives by more easily accessible data and user-friendly for research while maintaining strict security measures around data security and privacy.
The collaboration with academia and industry will bring together a wealth of knowledge and services to maximise the benefit to patients.
