The UK government has announced that its Events Research Programme has started using Cheshire and Merseyside Combined Intelligence for Population Health Action (CIPHA) health data platform.

Developed by the Cheshire and Merseyside Integrated Care System, the digital health data platform helps to monitor how the pilot social events are impacting the Covid-19 pandemic.

This system is based on Graphnet Health’s CareCentric platform.

It helps to connect health and social care data about 2.5 million people from sources such as acute trusts, general practice, local authorities, community and mental health trusts.

This data helps to match Covid test results with tickets that people bought for the events to inform research and enables proper monitoring of virus transmission.

Individuals purchasing tickets needs to register their details and take lateral flow tests before and after attending the event, and this data collected will be sent into CIPHA to be available for research.

The events research programme runs in partnership between NHS, local authorities and University of Liverpool.

University of Liverpool Institute of Population Health dean Iain Buchan was quoted by Ukauthority.com as saying: “CIPHA has enabled civic, public health and NHS organisations to work quickly to a single source of truth across Liverpool – offering a command centre for very complex and fast moving operations such as building a public health safety net around events.”
