Coming up to one billion dollars in unclaimed fines for FDA. Might have to contact our designer to make space for a bigger number.

Quick Q. I'm going to do a long, arcing, informal, hectoring series of blog posts on NHS IT / academia / better use of data. Problems and how to fix them, victories, etc. Where is best? Medium? My personal blog's a bit quirky, and I can't be bothered to negotiate with editors.

RT principally because this is the best twitter ID of any doctor in the history of social media.

The HTA report of the CRASH-2 trial is absolutely drenched in character. God bless you Ian Roberts, and all who sail with you!

Hi I can't see from your website what the anonymisation arrangements are for trialists handing over data please? You discuss anonymisation, but give no definitions? What extent of anonymisation? For what purpose, download or sandbox?

Rules make people anxious, so let's reframe the angst. I think we need rules and a framework around "you may not withhold my data", with penalties and censure for any individuals or public bodies associated with withholding that data from app developers, researchers, and so on.

Lots of regulatory governance to restrict data sharing. What if I tell the NHS i *WANT* my data shared for planning, research, secondary apps.. and then the GP EHR system says NO, or some regulator, or some other element of the bureaucracy? Don't we need penalties for that too?

We turn our papers into accessible data tools, because we want our outputs to be useful at the coalface. We share our code, and our data, because we want our work to be re-usable, and to help anyone who's interested to check our working. We cheer any other team who do the same.

We need a tiny bit of advice from a LAWYER or BUSINESS WONK specialising in the DATA REQUIREMENTS for MARKETING AUTHORISATION for NEW DRUGS. It's for an interesting thing. Please email: lydia.berry@phc.ox.ac.uk if that's you!

The registered primary endpoint is change in burden (NCT00703157). The reported primary endpoint is freedom from AF? No mention of non-inferiority in the registration.

both come from the same team, both are technical, both could have bad ideas / implementation. both deserve review, i'd say the code that is active in the world moreso.
