UK Coronavirus Cancer Monitoring Project (UKCCMP)
The UKCCMP is a clinician-led reporting project to enable monitoring of cancer patients across the United Kingdom.
Our aims are to ensure that we learn from every case to ensure that the highest quality cancer care can be delivered across the country, mitigating the unfortunate effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
The project collects information about prevalence of COVID-19 infections with associated anonymised data about site of disease and mortality through our COVID-19 response reporting network.
It is unique in providing the first example of Live Clinical Data Dissemination System during this pandemic. This enables direct real-time daily updates back to individual Cancer Centres.
This system is coordinated by the Centre for Computational Biology allowing annotation, analysis and dissemination securely through a dedicated workflow hosted by the Compute and Storage for Life Science (CaStLeS) infrastructure as part of the Birmingham Environment for Academic Research local Cloud (BEARCloud). A pushed near-real-time update is generated daily to an interactive website and reports are sent to individual UK Cancer Centres and clinicians at a weekly basis .
