What is DataLoch?
DataLoch is a secure data service that supports health and social care priorities and is funded under a ten-year Data-Driven Innovation (DDI) programme. DataLoch has been developed in partnership between NHS Lothian and the University of Edinburgh. Find out more about the DDI programme on their website.
In the DataLoch team, we believe that putting data at the centre of responses to health and care system challenges is critical to improving services through research, innovation and planning.
Our approach will lead to better decision making, research, and support for colleagues on the front line. We will do this by:
- bringing together health and social care data for the South-East Scotland region;
- working with experts in health and social care to understand and improve this data; and
- providing safe access to data for researchers
