Digital & Health Informatics

Advancing medical knowledge across the Liverpool City Region

Better insights, better care

Our Digital Health and Informatics programme aims to make complicated health data easier to use and to provide value for money and effectiveness in health services. This is made possible by bringing together expertise, technology and a range of facilities. 

We’re working on developing a strategy with the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority to create a trustworthy approach to health data use. The Civic Data Cooperative project (which has been approved £5.3 million in funding from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority), will enhance data security across NHS and local government organisations that provide care. Together, we can revolutionise how data is used to deliver better care for patients and create new and improved health technology jobs across the region.

The Civic Data Cooperative project will provide better insights into care needs, fostering innovations that will improve care across the life course.
