Clinical Record Interactive Search (CRIS)

CRIS enables safe and secure retrieval of de-identified data from the Trust’s Electronic Medical Record System (Rio), which can then be used for research, clinical audits and service evaluations for the benefits of our services and service users. In use by 12 UK mental health trusts, data can be shared to accelerate research work in dementia and mental health on a larger scale. Learn more about CRIS and how it is used.
