Why join us ?
The IBD Registry is the first and largest repository of UK IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) data, and is just beginning its next phase of growth. There are approx. 500,000 people in the UK with IBD, a chronic disease which can be debilitating, difficult to manage and is still not well understood. Our mission is to provide better understanding based on data, to improve care of and treatments for patients, better information for clinicians and other stakeholders, with the aim throughout of improving outcomes for patients. Although we are a small organisation we play a big role in improving people’s lives. We work directly with hospitals, doctors and nurses across the UK; with drug studies, with the NHS, as well as with key Universities in the fields of biostatistics and data analytics. We are deeply involved in the fast-moving and exciting area of health data, and the technologies that underpin and transform that data.
In pursuit of our mission we have recently partnered with Cambridge University Hospitals and the University of Cambridge on a 3 year/£5million programme to link and make accessible diverse datasets in a Hub for researchers. This project will involve the FHIR transformation of our existing dataset and linkage of it with the Bioresource IBD dataset and also with the key NHS HES and electronic Prescribing datasets. This is a national project very much at the leading edge, looking to transform the landscape for researchers and the data they need for their work.
We hope to hear from you soon if you think we have a role for you here at the IBD Registry.
