Health Informatics News

The government Clinical Practice Research Database (CPRD) has collected de-identified patient data from UK GP practices research for 30 years leading to thousands of peer-reviewed publications.A recent agreement between TPP and CPRD has meant that now practices using TPP’s SystmOne can send daily data to CRPD.

Where practices have consented, this transfer of data will commence in November and, as other practices join the pilot, CPRD can expect to benefit from increasing volume of data as well as an increase in its geographical spread.

Patients are able to opt out sharing their medical records but, where included, the linkage process will be strongly pseudonymised, with an encrypted delivery mechanism.
