Actionable analytics linking patient, practitioner and population primary care

Project summary

Despite increasing amounts of data from medical records that could be used to improve primary care, it is unclear how to use the data effectively.

I will develop a methodology to uncover relevant clinical actions directly from medical record data. I will build a user interface that continually improves the presentation of data for health professionals using randomised tests. I will evaluate how these methodologies translate to different healthcare systems in the UK and Canada and test a smartphone application that communicates these actions directly to patients.

This research will result in the development of a framework for generating and communicating clinical actions to practitioners and patients from medical record data, and specific software applications that can be used in clinical practice.
