The NIHR CLAHRC for Northwest London is a five year nationally funded collaborative research improvement programme that will accelerate health research into patient care. The group’s initial work consisted of designing and setting up a data collection, analysis and reporting infrastructure which provides quantitative and qualitative metrics for health improvement.

The current work is on formalizing the healthcare pathways through stochastic models for evaluation of new hospital processes, and their verification against collected data.
