Week of events to celebrate digital transformation at UCLH

UCLH and UCL staff can find out more about data science happening at the trust and all the tools available to help them at a series of events and courses in March, organised to celebrate the digital transformation of UCLH with the arrival of Epic a year ago.

The UCLH/UCL Clinical and Research Informatics Unit will run 30-minute sessions from 23-26 March to enable staff to learn about:

  •           EMAP – the live data analytics platform for UCLH staff
  •           CogStack – Natural Language Processing which helps clinical decision-making
  •           Find a Study – a search engine for UCLH clinical trials
  •           Data Explorer – the portal for data access requests
  •           Slicer Dicer – a reporting tool with customisable search criteria used with Epic

All staff are welcome to these 30-minute sessions and the full timetable will be announced soon.

In addition to these sessions, healthcare professionals who wish to apply data science to their work can sign up for one or two two-day courses in the same week.
