Informatics underpins all of the Oxford AHSN’s programmes. It’s all about the data – there’s a lot of it out there and we need to get better at how we use it. If we analyse and interpret data intelligently clinicians will be better able to make informed decisions leading to improved patient care.

The Oxford AHSN region covers a population of over three million people. Our NHS partner organisations have thousands of patient contacts every day.

These large numbers are extremely valuable, giving us unprecedented opportunities to reduce unwarranted variation and improve clinical outcomes – provided we have robust systems and processes in place, identify the right key data metrics and harness technological innovation.
