King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center (KFSH&RC) launches the Dynamic Health Statistics Platform
KFSH&RC is one of the leading healthcare institutions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and provides medical services of highly specialized nature, promotes the prevention of disease, supports medical research and provides postgraduate education. Its goal is to be a world-leading institution of quality and innovation in healthcare.
“One effective way of enhancing the quality of care is using data and techniques of data projection such as maps and statistical reports. The Dynamic Health Statistics platform that we are inaugurating utilizes technologies for analysis and dissemination of information from the data registries that allow researchers and the general audience to learn more about diseases such as Congenital Heart Defects, Diabetes, Epilepsy and more” said His Excellency Dr. Qasibi, Chief Executive Officer of the KFSH&RC, during his speech at the “Health Decisions Made Easy” symposium, held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
The purpose of the platform is to promote awareness and understanding of diseases by sharing data with the public information that could affect their daily lives share. The data is anonymous and privacy protected. In addition, researchers can gain insights from analysis of trends from confidentialized micro-data records. The platform is based on Space-Time Research’s SuperVIEW analytics and visualization platform.
The first two registries to be launched are the “Cleft Lip/Palate and Craniofacial Anomalies Registry” which is the result of a collaborative project between Dental Department and Biostatistics Epidemiology and Scientific Computing Department and the “Congenital Heart Defects Registry” developed by the BESC Department .
Continuing, H.E. Dr. Al-Qasabi said, “………. data found in the registries that we have projected on the platform, reflects around 20,461 cases from the CHD registry, over 68,476 from the Diabetes and 3,795 cases from the Epilepsy registry. The platform will continue to host more published data for the on-going registries like Neural Tube Defects, Breast Cancer, Neuromuscular Diseases and several others.”
“Space-Time and its partner MIS are proud to be associated with the impressive success of King Faisal Specialist Hospital and are please they have chosen SuperVIEW to provide the balance between privacy protection and data communication required to disseminate sensitive health data” said John Ellenberger, Vice President at Space-Time Research. John went on to say “it is no longer sufficient to collect and analyse data. Data must be delivered in a timely, accessible, and attractive manner to make it effective for researchers and the public.”
