REAL-HEALTH is a major programme funded by Barts Charity, following the award of a £2.2 million grant in October 2018.
The programme builds on the success of CEG's nationally-leading population health improvement work, supporting the 272 GP practices that care for North East London's 2.2 million patients.
Targeting key areas of public health
The REAL-HEALTH programme comprises three projects that each target a key area of public health and demonstrate the scientific and service applications of health data science:
- REAL-HEALTH CHILD HEALTH (Childhood obesity and congenital disorders)
- REAL-HEALTH RESPIRATORY (Asthma)
- REAL-HEALTH CARDIOVASCULAR (Triple aim of blood pressure control, high intensity statin use and bleeding reduction)
Using software tools, guidelines and educational resources, each project helps healthcare practitioners to deliver equitable health services in the ethnically and socially diverse populations of North East London.
Discovery Data Service
REAL-HEALTH builds on the Discovery Data Service programme, funded by local NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups and Endeavour Health charity. REAL-HEALTH will support the development of clinical, business and research intelligence using the Discovery Data Service as the underlying linked data.
