Access for Imperial College Healthcare NHS Staff
Staff accessing information within the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and iCARE Environment will be able to log onto the Mauro Data Mapper. The Data Mapper is a tool which provides a mechanism for full cycle metadata. Data are presented with descriptions and details from sources systems., As users (through clinical sponsor) develop an understanding of semantic meaning of the data, they will record it here, and as analysts develop tools using the data they will link to their scripts and outputs. The feedback from users will then be used to reshape and improve data quality in the dataset development phase.
To access the Mauro Data Mapper from inside the Trust please contact Dimitri Papadimitriou.
Publicly available datasets
We are working to make our internal data catalogue accessible from outside of the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Until this is possible you can see some of our curated datasets via:
- Details of the COVID-19 specific ICHT dataset
- Details of the COVID-19 specific WSIC datasets
- Details of the Whole System Integrated Care database (including Discover Now)
- Details on our NIHR Health Informatics Collaborative datasets
- HDR Innovation Gateway
We are aiming to make information about the datasets (known as metadata) we hold for use in research available in the public domain as possible. We are working through an automated process at the current time to ensure we can meet the Trust’s rigorous security rules.
Get access to data
We have set up a single route for applications to access Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust’s (ICHT) de-identified patient data. This includes access to unstructured data (text and imaging) and access to ICHT data linked to other datasets including Whole Systems Integrated Care data. Please read all information on this page before applying to access data.
The iCARE team are happy to support applications for all types of studies requiring access to routine data, however some types of studies may require further approvals or review by other committees, for example:
- Transfers of data outside of the Trust
- Projects that involve contact with patients (e.g. clinical trials).
- Projects that require access to identifiable data
We can provide details of these further approvals as part of the application process.
