Data Saves Lives

#DataSavesLives – find out how researchers use your data to improve health

A new animation has been created to answer questions about the use of patient data by UK universities, researchers and scientists.
Produced in collaboration with patients and members of the public by Connected Health Cities and The Farr Institute of Health Informatics Research, the three-minute animated film has been designed to increase public awareness of how routinely collected NHS data is safely and securely re-used by universities for health research.
The animation takes viewers on a journey to understand how patient data is created and shared and the important role it plays in research to improve the health of patients and populations. Examples are highlighted with relevant case studies and the measures that universities must take to ensure patient data is protected and accessed is explained.
The animation forms part of the #DataSavesLives campaign that has been supported by Connected Health Cities, The Farr Institute and Salford Royal since it was launched by The University of Manchester in 2015.
