Clinical Change Forum: 13th of September: An evening with Prof. Aziz Sheikh

Towards the Creation of a Learning Health and Care System

Digitised health and social care data offer numerous opportunities for enhancing population health and patient care. In this presentation, I will draw on examples of work I (and colleagues) have undertaken over the past 15 years using electronic health record derived data to better understand the epidemiology of diseases, evaluate the impact of clinical and public health interventions and increase the efficiency of clinical trials. I will then summarise the approaches we are currently pursuing to scale-up these efforts in order to facilitate the creation of a Learning Health and Care System and consider possible implications for Edinburgh/Lothian.
