Python helping to analyse health data
Software can be developed using the Python language for many domains; it is thus not surprising that the Python project and community associated with it have developed a very wide range of libraries tailored towards many applications. Within the healthcare sector this is no exception, the management and execution of healthcare requires and generates a lot of data. Tools from Python libraries and other languages can be used to understand this.
In the NHS a Python Community has been developed to bring together users of the language for data analysis supporting sharing of insights across different parts of the organisation; as well as sharing of open code and training; and links to users of related analytical techniques based on different tools such as R. If you are working with Python in or with the NHS and want to connect to the community you can do so here. Since Python is a core part of tools that Coevolve IT can offer and many clients have connections to the healthcare sector, this seems an important activity to support.
