Funded by the leading pregnancy charity, Tommy’s, researchers from the Institute of Digital Healthcare (IDH) and Warwick Medical School (WMS), will be joining doctors from University Hospital, Coventry to investigate the causes of early miscarriage.
The Institute of Digital Healthcare, at the University of Warwick, will develop a clinical database, led by Professor Theo Arvanitis, to support the work of the Centre and improve on outcomes based on information-driven approaches.
The Centre’s clinical database will be using modules of the Comprehensive Unified Research (CURe) Framework, previously developed by IDH. The objective of the CURe framework and its associated web applications is to develop a new approach to get researchers in different specialties to start thinking of prospective studies and what data they need to collect that would be useful to them and their colleagues. Common data elements to all medical areas, as well as specialist requirements are handled by the framework. For this work the main modules on medication and basic patient information, together with a full Terminology and Vocabulary Service will be offered, to build the new database which will collect essential data on miscarriage incidents so that prevention strategies can be devised based on the analysis of these data.
