Patient data journey

What happens to your data within the INSIGHT hub?

The diagram below shows what happens to the eye data routinely collected from patients that forms the basis of INSIGHT.

It begins with your visit to hospital, when you have an eye scan or test. This data is stored safely by the hospital, which then shares it with INSIGHT. We combine similar data from thousands of patients to form large datasets. We anonymise these datasets before making them available for carefully vetted research projects that will bring clear patient benefit.

The diagram below will soon be interactive, with detailed explanations for all the labels:
