About us

NorthWest EHealth

We are world leaders in the innovative and trustworthy use of routinely collected healthcare data for clinical trials. Our clinical trial platform enables more effective feasibility, economic modelling, recruitment, real-time safety monitoring and data analytics to support the whole clinical trial lifecycle.

Our organisation

NorthWest EHealth is the essence of what it means to be truly innovative. We work with consenting patients who provide their data from primary care, secondary care, community pharmacies and other data sources to deliver validated electronic health record (EHRs) enabled randomised controlled trials (RCTs), safely and securely.

Our history

NorthWest EHealth was established in 2008 as a collaboration between Salford Clinical Commissioning Group, The University of Manchester, and Salford Royal Foundation Trust. In 2016 we incorporated as a company limited by shares; all of our shares are owned by Salford Clinical Commissioning Group, The University of Manchester, and Salford Royal Foundation Trust. We employ over 70 staff covering both clinical and technical roles.

We are the leading experts in the field of electronic health records (EHRs) enabled randomised clinical trials (RCTs). We provided the technology that enabled the success of the Salford Lung study and are the only organisation in the world to have evaluated the safety and effectiveness of a pre-license medicine in a real-world setting.

Our Board

We are governed by an executive board made up of key leaders from our partner organisations. Our board and senior management team boast some of Britain’s most influential healthcare innovators.

Professor Martin Gibson

This is not about Big Data, this is about understanding the way patients interact with medications in their everyday lives. Our unique technology supports understanding of NHS data to bring the right drugs to market quicker, whilst providing timely and accurate information on safety and cost for payers and patients alike.

The future

We are continually expanding our data footprint throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. We use existing electronic health records (EHRs) to create value and patient outcome evidence in a real world setting. Working with NorthWest EHealth will help you to accurately gauge the success of clinical studies from the first stage of protocol design. You will have access to business intelligence that will help you recruit to time and target with confidence. Working with us you will be a part of the delivery of a much needed paradigm shift to randomised clinical trials (RCTs) that are bringing clinical trials into the 21st century.

We are expanding our digital data footprint locally, nationally, and globally whilst leading the innovation of truly disruptive clinical trials.
