The NHS’ globally unique health data ecosystem has the potential to improve health outcomes. With around 363,000 new cancer cases in the UK every year, oncology data can further be leveraged to help researchers make more informed decisions about medicines discovery, research and value, to improve cancer outcomes and patient experience.
Innovative approaches are also being developed in order to improve appropriate data access. This includes simulated data for generating real-world insights as well as DATA-CAN, the Health Data Research Hub for Cancer working in partnership with patients and the public, to make high-quality health data more accessible for cancer researchers, clinicians and other health professionals.
The Unlocking health data to improve oncology outcomes webinar, in association with IQVIA, will take place on Tuesday 28th April from 13:00-14:00 GMT and will look at how oncology data can be used safely and appropriately to:
- Drive more oncology research
- Make informed decisions from drug research, drug discovery through to drug value
- Encourage collaboration across healthcare stakeholders – payers, clinicians, researchers, industry, with the patient at the centre
- Improve care and patient outcomes
