What is patient data? How and why do UK universities use this data? Can data really save lives?

UK universities are using patient data to improve health, that’s why the Farr Institute and Connected Health Cities made this short video.

We want to let people know about our research and the impact it’s having. To reassure people that we are doing good work that’s improving care and saving money.

Connected Health Cities and The Farr Institute worked with patients and members of the public across the UK, to understand the questions they have about how their data is used in research.
