News Content

Tests on a pioneering mental health research database – which holds more than 200,000 electronic health records and is the largest data resource of its kind in Europe – has demonstrated its robust anonymisation process. The database has also proved more effective at protecting patient confidentiality than a current state-of-the-art programme.
 
The Clinical Record Interactive Search (CRIS) successfully allows researchers to analyse a large number of anonymised patient records to identify patterns, trends and gaps in the treatment of mental disorders. This promises significant benefits to people living with a mental health condition, as researchers are then able to reveal sooner how we can potentially improve care and treatment approaches. CRIS was developed by researchers, in conjunction with service users, at the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre.
