    Health & Social Care Information Centre

    We are the national source of health and social care information.


    We collect data from a range of health and care organisations, analyse it and publish it in a range of easily accessible formats to help commissioners make better decisions about care and local providers improve their health care services. We also support academics, researchers, regulators and policymakers in their work.

    In April 2013 the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) will be established as a new Executive Non-Departmental Public Body (ENDPB). This new organisation will incorporate functions from the existing HSCIC, IT systems delivery functions currently undertaken by NHS Connecting for Health and Strategic Health Authority informatics functions.  


    Our vision

    It is our vision to deliver maximum value from our health, public health and social care data as a publicly-owned national asset used for a wide range of secondary purposes, such as policy development, planning and commissioning, service improvement, research, public accountability and transparency.

    The project | Linked2Safety

    The central piece for healthcare and public health is information. Electronic Health Records (EHRs) contain an increasing wealth of medical information has the potential to significantly advance medical research, personalized healthcare, as well as health policies formulation, providing society with additional benefits within a global health perspective, with applications ranging from disease prevention and genetics to surveillance and epidemiologic studies. Healthcare Organizations and the pharmaceutical industry in Europe both share a common goal, to deliver the best possible personalized treatments and innovative medicines to improve patient outcomes. The industry believes that technological advances and broad implementation of EHRs in Europe can achieve this goal and accelerate clinical research.

    The above highlights the need for the development of an advanced environment for clinical research that enables seamless, secure and consistent integration of clinical care information in EHR with information in clinical trial systems, which will facilitate a) the early detection of patients’ safety issues, b) the identification of adverse events and c) the identification of a suitable critical mass of patients to participate in small (Phases II and III) or larger scale (Phase IV) clinical trials.

    Within this requirement formulation, we argue that recent innovations in the Semantic Web research, e.g. semantic interoperability efforts and Linked Data technologies, can support the development of an extensible, scalable architecture that will facilitate the semantic interlinking between spatially distributed clinical care information sources, electronic patients’ health
    records and clinical trials systems for gathering and sharing adequate knowledge to support decision making in medical and clinical research
    . These technologies will be empowered by a common shared infrastructure (including ontologies and common medical vocabularies, as well as health care record structures, and medical logic representations), mapping and alignment tools, patients’ data privacy, anonymity, security and authorized access techniques, for exposing, sharing, and connecting pieces of healthcare, medical and clinical data, information, and knowledge. The utilization and deployment of the aforementioned technologies for addressing semantic and technical interoperability of EHR/PHR and EDC repositories will result in an interoperability framework, which will allow homogenized, standardizedaccess to distributed patients data and clinical information resources.

    El blog de Nova Spivak. El título es de muy largo aliento y, quizá, pueda resultar un poco petulante, pero es bueno. "De la mente global a tu cerebro" creo que representa bien el propósito de las tecnologías semánticas en internet. Nova Spivak y su proyecto Twine son una referencia de la web semántica que debemos seguir con atención.
