New synthetic datasets to assist COVID-19 and cardiovascular research

3 August 2020

CPRD has generated high-fidelity synthetic datasets using a synthetic data generation and evaluation framework that was developed under a grant from the Regulators’ Pioneer Fund launched by The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and managed by Innovate UK.

These high-fidelity synthetic datasets replicate the complex clinical relationships in real primary care patient data while protecting patient privacy as they are wholly synthetic. They can be used instead of real patient data for complex statistical analyses as well as machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) research applications.
