Scottish research company Aridhia is moving to Azure, which could help Alzheimer’s research

Data from the world’s largest research project into the bar of Alzheimer’s will be stored on Microsoft’s cloud platform following a new agreement with Aridhia.

The Scottish company, whose digital research platform AnalytiXagility is used in the health, medicine research and preciseness medicine sectors, is to move all its work to Azure, including treatment studies by the European bar of Alzheimer’s dementedness pool (EPAD).

Aridhia will use Microsoft’s service to offer medical experts, so much as those at EPAD, a secure, efficient and safe way of sharing information to improve patient outcomes, accelerate clinical research and contribute to the development of new drugs.

“We have created a safe space for researchers to work with extremely privileged information associated with patients crosswise all types of conditions,” aforesaid David Sibbald, Chief Executive of Aridhia. “It allows research groups to work and collaborate with other medical centres crosswise the world, as well as bring in bio-pharmaceutical companies, in a secure environment.

“Microsoft’s approach to health care and life sciences was very attractive to us. They have the same view of information governance as we have, which is that we don’t own any of the information we hold, we just store and process it for our customers. It was very important for us to work with a company that shared that view.”

Researchers often test theories and develop potential treatments for a range of conditions at laboratories and other sites crosswise the UK. nevertheless, moving that to the clinical stage can be slow and difficult due to the amount of regulation introduced at that point. Arhidia’s service makes that process drum sander as health care experts are exploitation one platform from start to finish, piece reducing reimbursement and up information security. All the information will be held in Microsoft’s UK information centres.

Last year Arhidia in agreement a 10-year deal with Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) NHS Foundation Trust for AnalytiXagility. The move will help GOSH speed up its research projects by up the way its researchers access and analyse health care information.

Professor Neil Sebire, Chief Research Information Officer at GOSH, aforesaid: “The combination of Aridhia’s Digital Research Platform with the advanced psychological feature employment of Azure will provide a unique combination of information management and analysis employment to accelerate the adoption of AI employment at GOSH and at DRIVE, our recently launched digital innovation environment”.

Aridhia is planning to give some customers early access to their Digital Research Platform running on Azure in January.
