Questionnaire on e-health records research
To exploit the UK's position as a world leader in health informatics, the UK Health Departments are developing infrastructures to link electronic health data for research purposes e.g. the Health Research Support Service (HRSS) being developed by the NIHR Research Capability Programme (RCP), the Welsh Secure Annonymised Information Linkage (SAIL) system and the Scottish Health Information System (SHIP).
The major UK research funders wish to realise the research opportunities offered by these infrastructure developments and are carrying out a mapping exercise that will review the current capacity in the UK e-health records research. If you're working in e-health records related research or wish to work in e-health related research, you can participate in a questionnaire that can be accessed via the link www.mrc.ac.uk/ehealthquestionnaire .
