The University of Birmingham has partnered with leading organisations to extract useful insights that are arising from a digital NHS.
The HDR UK Midlands network brings together the healthcare and data science communities from across the Midlands to improve the quality of health data, and to develop new tools and technologies that equip our frontline healthcare staff to deliver excellent care.
In April 2023, the University of Birmingham received a further 5 years of research funding to host the HDR UK Midlands Regional network.
HDR UK Midlands has three high level objectives, these are:
- To maintain and expand the HDR UK Midlands regional network reaching out to all parts of our region.
- To upskill and improve the knowledge and capabilities of our workforce by enabling them to learn from each other.
- To maximise opportunities for our region through the HDR UK Midlands regional community platform.
To bring together the strengths of our region, the network has launched its “HDR UK Midlands Regional Community Platform”.
The HDR UK Midlands Regional Community is not exclusive and is open to anyone who has an interest in health data science.
Following an invitation to the University to join the Alan Turing Institute, as the Institute expanded its university network from its five founding university partners to 13, 22 researchers from across the University were appointed Alan Turing Fellows in 2018, joining the national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.
