Convenor: Dr Pia Hardelid

Keynote speaker: Professor Sarah Walker

Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology (University of Oxford and University College London)

Title: Using different types of routinely collected electronic health record data for infectious diseases surveillance

Abstract: Vast amounts of data are routinely collected on individuals interacting with the healthcare environment. Yet infectious diseases surveillance has historically predominantly been based on manual data collection through bespoke systems. Widespread use of universal patient identifiers such as NHS numbers provides the opportunity to easily link data from inpatient admissions and pathology (including microbiology and blood test results), substantially increasing the scope of infectious disease surveillance. Illustrative examples demonstrate both this potential and some major pitfalls.
