Come and join us for the latest Gateway Open Door meeting on Thursday 25 September at 9am.
Content for this month:
- Introduction to the phenotypes library
- Integration of the phenotypes library with the Gateway demo
Register here to receive further details.
We look forward to seeing you there!
New datasets now discoverable on the Gateway from hubs and Alliance members:
- Early Pandemic Evaluation and Enhanced Surveillance of COVID-19 (EAVE II)
- Effects of second-hand smoke on pregnant women: a phenomenological study
- 4 Country ChrOnic: estimating respiratory disease burden in adults, South India
- Prevention, detection, treatment: adult lung disease/cancer in rural Tamil Nadu
- Theory of Planned Behaviour Intervention: respiratory disease in South India
- Asthma and COPD: practices and perceptions of GPs in rural India
Our seven Health Data Research Hubs are specialist centres of excellence, using health data to drive forward innovations and insights that improve patients’ lives across a wide range of conditions. For the first time, we have now brought together their research collections in a single place on HDRUK’s Innovation Gateway, providing researchers with an unrivalled repository of resources that will help to accelerate research and collaboration.

Health Data Research Hub Gateway Collections:
Not finding what you are looking for can be frustrating. This is why we have created the unmet demand dashboard. This will enable us to track queries that do not return results, and take action to bring specific new datasets/tools/other on the Gateway.
Log on onto the Gateway to see the new dashboard under your profile. Tell us what you think.
Innovators need to quickly understand if a specific dataset is of use to their project. Key to this understanding is the completeness of the metadata related to the datasets so innovators know if there will be enough information to make a decision, but also the technical metadata for this dataset, so innovators can better understand the composition of the dataset.
To facilitate this journey, the Gateway now has a visual representation of metadata quality on all dataset pages, as well as detailed technical metadata when available. Just search for a dataset, and you will see in the top right corner the metadata quality wheel. You can click on it for more details. Clicking on "Technical details" will show all variables related to this dataset.
The Phenotype library is now an integral component of the Gateway and will enable you, for example, to refine your search results to only match the exact phenotypes you are interested in.
Electronic Health Records (EHR) are a valuable resource for researcher and clinicians for improving health and healthcare. They are, however of variable detail and quality and contain many inconsistencies. As a result, researchers and data providers spend considerable time creating complex computer programs to fix and statistically analyse the information in EHR and identify which patients have which disease. HDR UK National Phenomics Resource has established a national standard for creating, evaluating and representing phenotypes, to accelerate the impact of discovery through increased transparency and replicability.
We have just add details for quite a number of exciting courses from our training partners onto the Gateway. Click here to start exploring your learning opportunities. Please do also share in our collaboration area ideas for future courses.
