The purpose of the role is to contribute to evaluative work exploring the impact of electronic patient records, for example on health outcomes, and the benefits for acute hospitals and their related economies. The research will be organised as a programme comprising a series of smaller projects. The findings will add to the sparse evidence base, providing a greater understanding of the importance, value, benefits and costs of specific components of technology for patient care and insights into the evaluation of health information technologies.
The post-holder will be required to work closely with colleagues at the partner study site, Wrightington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Foundation Trust (WWL), designing and managing a series of projects as part of the overall programme of research.
It is anticipated that the majority of projects will be quantitative in nature and a good practical understanding of appropriate robust quantitative methods (controlled trials, cohort studies, case-control studies, interrupted time series) and associated statistical tests is essential. The programme of research may also involve the use of qualitative methods.
