Dr Beatriz de al Iglesia is a computer scientist and data mining expert with experience of health care data analysis. One of her key focuses is in mining heterogeneous health data and all of the challenges that such task represent. Within the first HPRU she led work exploring whether information extracted from Twitter, could be used to generate useful health surveillance datasets. She has also worked on the analysis of primary care datasets for disease risk evaluation, on text mining of gastroenterology procedural reports to identify key success indicators and on linking data in the secondary care setting in order to create patient-centric databases suitable for clinical research.
