The Centre for Cambridge Clinical Informatics (CCI) was established in 2014 with the introduction of the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) electronic medical record (EMR) system known as eHospital, and significant funding from the Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) under the newly established Informatics Theme. Within CCI we are currently:
- developing platforms and corresponding regulation to enable clinical research for all investigators working on translational research;
- conducting a wide range of research within clinical informatics, consisting of exemplar uses of data, development of EMR interventions, and understanding human-technology interactions;
- establishing collaborations with health and social care providers in the local CUH catchment area for data sharing;
- developing Clinical Informatics for different levels of EMR and eHealth capability; and
- establishing a framework for data sharing, regulation and expansion, including public engagement.
We are a growing Centre that welcomes collaborators from all disciplines, and we invite all researchers who are using clinical data to discuss how we may form a partnership in facilitating data collection and use.
