Cancer Intelligent System – Opportunity for industry involvement

The Cancer Information System Programme is a Scottish Funding Council collaborative programme between three Innovation Centres (Digital Health & Care Institute; The Data Lab and Stratified Medicine) in partnership with industry and clinical teams. The objective of this project is to develop a prototype Cancer Intelligence System (CIS) directed towards fulfilling the needs of cancer patients and clinicians in improving care and cancer outcomes for patients in Scotland.
