MEDMI - The Medical and Environmental Data Mash-up Infrastructure project

Hello all and welcome to the Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Community of Practice (CoP) on Knowledge Hub. The work shown in this CoP is managed by the Environmental Epidemiology Group (EEG) within Public Health England (PHE).

Becky Gudka, a medical student from Exeter University, has interviewed creators and users of MEDMI, the Medical and Environmental Data Mash-up Infrastructure project and created an insightful video. MEDMI has brought together leading organisations in climate, weather, environment and health to explore how big data can be used in health research. The video presents why data linkage is important and how it works. The video interviews with researchers and national leaders in the fields of weather, climate and public health includes:

·       Examples of data linkage in practice using the university’s MEDMI Platform from a selection of research projects;

·       Why data linkage is key for research and the development of policy;

·       The new national capability in the EPHSS (Environmental Public Health Surveillance System) provided by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA).

 

The video can be found here: https://www.ecehh.org/research/medmi-big-data-weather-climate-public-health/

We are planning to open EPHSS to external users in 2022, so please get in touch via epht@phe.gov.uk if you would like to use the system when it becomes available.
