SAS Software to Help Hospital Manage Biomedical Data; Graham Hughes Comments

SASLogoSAS has signed an agreement to provide data visualization software for a hospital trust to manage its collection of non-clinical and clinical data on people with lung and heart diseases.

Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust will use SAS’ Visual Analytics program to gain insights into research problems and access patient data in a single view, SAS said Tuesday.

“Incorporating analytics into our research trials can deliver new insights in key areas, such as the factors that lie behind the onset of heart and lung disease, which can then inform critical decisions about how we treat our patients,” said Joanna Smith, Royal Brompton & Harefield chief information officer.

Visual Analytics offers an in-memory technology intended to help users analyze, identify and visualize patterns in big data by using web reports applications or tablet devices, SAS said.

Dr. Graham Hughes, SAS chief medical officer, said the software is designed to help researchers find patterns in disease trend data.

The hospital intends to use the SAS platform as a collaborative mechanism for its administrators and clinicians.

SAS has an online environment for clients interested in trying the software product.
