Research

ResearchOne supports all projects which aim to bring real improvements to patient care and the health service. This includes supporting:

  • Medical Research
  • Health Services Research
  • eHealth Research

Enabling secure, ethically-approved access to data from a large number of shared, integrated electronic health records offers an excellent opportunity for high-impact, high-quality research. This research can support the NHS and healthcare professionals in their delivery of effective healthcare.

Examples of recent research projects supported by ResearchOne are:

  • Development of a frailty index based on routinely-collected primary care data
    (Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust & ResearchOne)
  • Identifying prognostic markers in patients with chronic heart failure
    (Faculty of Medicine & Health, University of Leeds)
  • ASPIRE: Action to Support Practices Implementing Research Evidence
    (NHS Airedale, Bradford & Leeds, University of Leeds)
  • Prediction modelling of non-attendance of GP and Child Health appointments
    (Yorkshire Centre for Health Informatics & ResearchOne)

We are always looking for new ways in which we can support innovative healthcare research. This may be to improve patient care, increase the quality of medical knowledge or provide direct evidence to aid with commissioning decisions. Please send us an Expression of Interest form from the Documentation page or contact us if you would like to discuss any potential research project.

Current ResearchOne Programme

The ResearchOne team includes research staff committed to producing high quality results through collaborations with the academic and health communities. The current programme is aiming to develop the following areas:

  • Risk prediction algorithms to highlight patient health risks or other predicted outcomes. This includes both clinical diagnostic algorithms and algorithms designed to improve administrative efficiency in healthcare.
  • Enhanced decision supports tools to aid clinicians in the delivery of effective, safe healthcare.
  • Real-time public health surveillance to facilitate the response to pandemics and epidemics.
  • The use of a large database of electronic health records to drive the direction of future medical research.
