About the Data
DataLoch brings together routine data collected as part of people’s day-to-day interactions with health and social care services. These data include the services used, details of visits to hospitals or GPs, treatments, medicines prescribed, as well as outcomes and test results.
These data enable researchers to answer important questions about how the wellbeing of people could be improved. There are many examples of how health data research has delivered insights to help solve challenging health problems, including diagnosing rare diseases, improving the performance and equity of care, identifying diseases early, and assessing the effectiveness of health service.
