Anatomy of Enterprise (Functions) Collect Data Create Information RDS Business Intelligence Gain Insight
Open Data Platform Raison d’être: Collecting DATA to create INFORMATION that enables INSIGHT and therefore delivers BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE • Response to the Government’s transparency agenda • Data which is accessible and readable • Data that is ‘linkable’ • Data that enables insight
The needle in the Big Data haystack Higher Quality Lower Cost Quicker
Central Portfolio Management System • Enabling performance management of research locally: • Access to the width of NHS information • Linked to the NIHR national data set • Linked to reference data (organisational, terminology and clinical) • Seamless data entry: • Recruitment, information and study progress • From within a local system • From a mobile device • National performance management capability: • One research function for the NHS
Reference Data Service • Providing a single source of truth • Source of common language • Repository of terminology • Single map or parent child organisational information • Terminology index for clinical research management • Map of clinical coding (UK CRC to READ to SNOMED to ICD10) RDS
