Lucky 13! First national TRE cohort is on-boarded
Scottish public health data now discoverable via the Cohort Discovery Search Tool
This is a massive achievement for the team, as PHS is the first national-scale Trusted Research Environment (TRE) to on-board their COVID data, as well as the second TRE overall. The first was the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC) who on-boarded the ISARIC 4C cohort.
Not only does PHS’s addition bring CO-CONNECT’s running total of on-boarded COVID cohorts up to 13, it has also astronomically increased the number of searchable datasets on the CDST.
Thanks to PHS, a further 5.2 million records are now discoverable, making it the largest cohort the team has ever worked with. This title was previously held by ISARIC 4C, which contains around 270,000 records.
