VIEW - Vascular Informatics using Epidemiology and the Web

The VIEW research programme, led by Professor Rod Jackson, is developing better risk prediction tools to identify patients at high-risk of cardiovascular disease. By linking anonymous personal data on over two million New Zealanders from research and routine databases, VIEW quantifies and maps gaps and disparities in appropriate treatment and models the impact of treatment disparities on CVD burden. The information then feeds into electronic clinical decision support systems for use in hospitals and primary care forming a continuous feedback loop between research and practice.
