Medical professionals constantly grapple with a wealth of information,. How they digest and utilize this data can have a profound impact on patient outcomes.
Posts about the technology used to manage data for SCARD
Medical research in the field of skin cancer relies on significant computing power to process and analyse vast amounts of complex data. As skin cancer cases increase, more computational resources are needed to make meaningful strides in improving diagnostic accuracy and treatment options.
With regular reports of data breaches worldwide, security and compliance are a continuous focus of Skin Cancer Audit and Research Data Inc for the deidentified skin cancer results and databases we maintain.
This article is intended to provide information on the technology used by SCARD Inc for the collection and storage of data as well as the security and compliance measures undertaken.
One of the goals of Skin Cancer Audit and Research Data Inc is to establish a data lake of skin cancer treatments as well as processed results available in a database.
A database and a data lake are both data storage systems, but they have different architectures and use cases.
Deidentified records are a commonly used approach in medical research to protect the privacy of individuals whose data is being used. In Australia, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) provides guidelines for using deidentified data in research.
The first publication about SCARD was in the International Journal of Dermatology in a paper called “Measuring Performance in skin cancer practice: the SCARD Initiative.”
