The Gateway Data Use Register aims to improve transparency in the use of health data for research and innovation and provide a best practice example of how information about approved data uses is shared and managed. Its development is part of an ongoing project – led by the UK Health Data Research Alliance – to develop a core set of standards on data use registries.
Building trust in the use of health data for research
The Gateway Data Use Register allows data custodians to publicly show how their Gateway datasets are being used, who is using them and for what purpose.
Anyone can search the register to view all data uses approved by data custodians, and these can be edited, updated and archived as a project progresses.
Researchers might be interested to see how datasets listed on the Gateway are already being used to help inform their data request choices, whilst the public and funding bodies might search the register to understand how researchers are using the data.
