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 (RSC) 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.
The research group is a part of the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences and led by Prof Simon de Lusignan. We are committed to the bottom-up professionally led use of routine data for the benefit of patients, practitioners, and wider society. Our Trusted Research Environment ORCHID welcomes research opportunities
