Improving the sharing of informal and actionable knowledge for better care


The Faculty of Clinical Informatics (FCI) is leading a  Knowledge Sharing workstream  within the Health Data Research UK (HDR UK) Better Care Programme.

The Better Care programme is about building and scaling data-driven  learning healthcare systems  (LHSs) across the UK and the  Knowledge Sharing workstream  aims to facilitate a sustainable process for communication and knowledge sharing across the Better Care community.   

The workstream is part of the Better Care Catalyst Programme and is co-funded by HDR UK in partnership with the Health Foundation. The Better Care Catalyst Programme supports the development of health analytics and data science improvements that can be implemented across the health and care system to benefit patients, the workforce and the public.   

The FCI is conducting this work in line with the aims of the  UK Mobilising Computable Biomedical Knowledge  (MCBK) working group.
