Edinburgh-headquartered Aridhia and Great Ormond Street Hospital sign 10-year research and innovation platform deal
Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in London has become the first hospital to employ Aridhia’s ground-breaking digital tech developed in Edinburgh.
The GOSH NHS Foundation Trust has agreed a 10-year deal with the Edinburgh-based firm – a cloud-based data analysis platform provider – to adopt the firm’s ‘ecosystem’ edition of its AnalytiXagility cloud-based data analysis platform.
The tech will be used to enable, accelerate and transform the way GOSH manages its research projects and will be integrated with the Trust’s new Electronic Patient Record System. It forms part of the Trust’s multi-year digital transformation programme.
Designed to enhance the way researchers access and analyse data in a secure and reproducible way, AnalytiXagility will help research teams to rapidly access and extract value from a rich source of data to accelerate the translation of pioneering research into clinical practice.
Chris Roche, CEO of Aridhia, said: “Great Ormond Street Hospital is world-renowned and it is an honour to be given the opportunity to support such extraordinary researchers deliver ground-breaking research across multiple clinical domains. For Great Ormond Street to select AnalytiXagility after a rigorous 12-month procurement process is great endorsement of our vision to accelerate clinical research.”
“The Trust was seeking a secure, scalable research platform that would allow their teams to collaborate on analysis and deliver rapid, auditable and reproducible results. AnalytiXagility satisfies these requirements. We are very much looking forward to working with them on this next stage of their research journey.”
Aridhia’s cloud-based data platform is said to offer a secure, neutral and supportive environment to conduct research and helps to facilitate collaboration around data collection, curation, and management, as well as offering access to an advanced suite of analytical tools and technologies.
Dr Peter Steer, Chief Executive of GOSH for Children Foundation Trust, said: “We look forward to working with Aridhia to develop an innovative platform which will transform the way we undertake and collaborate on research. This will allow us to bring more life-saving treatments to children with rare diseases in the UK and worldwide.”
