SAIL Databank’s Senior Research Manager and Data Scientist, Ashley Akbari, speaks to DHEW about how the Trusted Research Environment (TRE) technology behind the SAIL Databank is supporting the One Wales response.
As cases of Covid-19 increased in the UK, access to timely data was, and continues to be, a fundamental part of understanding and tackling the virus for those working within policy and research.
The programme-makers interviewed Swansea University’s Professor Ronan Lyons, Director of SAIL Databank, who summarised the insights gleaned from the rich health data in SAIL from the first peak of the virus.
New real time analysis demonstrating the spread of Covid-19 in Wales has directly informed the One Wales response to Covid-19 in Wales.
Trusted relationships, built on strong processes, policies and a common understanding have been at the heart the rapid delivery of research intelligence for the One Wales response to COVID-19.
Since the earliest days of the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, the SAIL Databank has played a pivotal role in the One Wales strategic response to this unprecedented global threat.
In recent times our team of data scientists have been increasingly called upon to provide valuable intelligence based on the anonymised data that we securely hold within our very own, world leading SAIL Databank.
