ICODA are pleased to announce they have awarded funding to the International Perinatal Outcomes in the Pandemic (iPOP) Study.
We are delighted to be working with the International Perinatal Outcomes in the Pandemic (iPOP) Study, as one of our initial path-setting Driver Projects. ICODA supports the bringing together of large amounts of highly comphttps://www.ipopstudy.com/lex, confidential health data from multiple international datasets, to be accessed within a secure and trustworthy analysis environment. They will both address important research questions and serve to test our processes and tools as we build an approach for the long-term. The overall goal of the iPOP Study is to determine the impact of pandemic lockdowns and restrictions on perinatal outcomes worldwide and identify the underlying mechanisms.
ICODA is building a collaborative Alliance of partners to address the challenges of facilitating access to data in a responsible way. Our overarching goals for this Driver Project are to demonstrate:
- Meaningful health impact that addresses important COVID-19 research questions
- The benefits of a multi-country, multi-stakeholder approach including LMICs
- The value of using the capabilities of the ICODA Workbench and federated analytics to harness the power of health data.
Driver Projects bring together data contributors and researchers to access multiple datasets and empower them with the tools, infrastructure and processes to help address key research questions and deliver health impact. At the same time, they help us to ensure that our technology, processes and governance are scalable and fit for purpose.
