Population Data BC would like to invite you to a seminar by David Ford
, co-Lead of the Health Informatics Research Unit (HIRU) for Wales. This unit has quickly established itself internationally as one of the most successful data centres in terms of breadth of data sources, speed of access, and collaboration with policy makers.
The Secure Anonymised Information Linkage (SAIL) databank has been established to link together the widest possible range of health-related, individual-level data of the people of Wales to create a powerful infrastructure capable of supporting a wide range of research. Developed and operated by Swansea University’s Health Information Research Unit, SAIL uses high-powered computing combined with a range of privacy protecting approaches to safeguard the 2 billion+ linked events in the databank. HIRU is actively developing new tools, techniques and data sources to enhance SAIL’s research utility for an ever increasing user base, and to improve the richness of the data
The seminar will provide an overview of SAIL and the way in which researchers may access SAIL. It will also provide some examples of current research undertaken by the Health Information Research Unit.
