Free-text data held in healthcare records represent a vast, untapped source of rich information to guide research and clinical care. Generally, clinical data need to be de-identified before they can be used for secondary purposes such as audit and research, but there are major challenges in finding effective methods that do not damage free-text data utility as a by-product.

TexGov is a Healtex-funded project to work towards the creation of data governance standards to enable free-text data to be used safely for research for public benefit.

You are invited to attend a dynamic and interactive workshop with a combination of presentations, a panel discussion and group activities to take forward the work in this exciting area.
