About GOSH Drive
DRIVE is Great Ormond Street Hospital's Digital Research, Informatics and Virtual Environments Unit, focusing on using data and technology to improve clinical care and patient experience. DRIVE aims to become a world leading clinical informatics unit focused on data analysis, accelerating research and the deployment of cutting-edge technology. It will harness the powerful combination of rich health data with data science and digital innovation and develop scalable solutions to enhance health services not only for GOSH patients but across the wider NHS.
DRIVE's dedicated space, close to GOSH, is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to support the testing of new technologies.
The team is working with ARM, Barclays, Microsoft, NTT DATA, Samsung, and UCL to ensure the latest in technology and digital developments will be implemented into a clinical setting at pace.
Researchers and students work alongside clinicians on early phase studies with successful prototypes transferring to the hospital for the next stage of evaluation. The DRIVE team are engaging with young people, patients and families to incorporate their ideas in the project portfolio.
