Medical and Environmental Data Mashup Infrastructure
The Medical and Environmental Data Mashup Infrastructure (MEDMI) project is one of the initiatives doing this [integrating disparate data]. We’re hoping to enable research into the links between climate, weather, environment and health. By bringing databases from each of these areas together and allowing access through one web-based portal, we’re aiming to create a shared resource for medical, environmental, and public health researchers.
Integration of these datasets can enable early warning systems as we learn more about connections of factors in driving health outcomes.
Disease Risk Atlas
A new online map of England and Wales allows people to enter their postcode and find their community's risk of developing 14 conditions, such as heart disease and lung cancer. The data comes from a 25 year study.
Toilet Behavior Data
While there are a lot of jokes, I have to believe there's value in this data for medical researchers.
