About the data intro
DataLoch will bring together the routine data collected as part of everyone’s day-to-day interactions with health and social care services. This data includes the services used, details of visits to hospitals or GPs, treatments, medicines prescribed, as well as outcomes and test results.
This data enables 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 services.
