Clinical Informatics and Health Outcomes Research Group

The Clinical Informatics and Health Outcomes Group is a dynamic and dedicated team of researchers, SQL developers, statisticians and practice liaison officers who work with the Oxford-Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) Research and Surveillance Centre to monitor and report on the incidence of common illnesses in the community. We extract and aggregate data from primary care computer systems and other parts of the health system for cross-sectional, cohort and case-control studies.

Having relocated to Oxford from the University of Surrey in 2019, we have a rich history of projects around how technology can enable quality and support the implementation of clinical governance. The research group is a part of the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences.
