The RDMP (Research Data Management Platform) is a large software suite developed within HIC, which over the past 3 years :


  • Automates the loading, storage, linkage and provision of data sets within a Safe Haven for research projects.
  • Cleans, transforms and documents provenance meta-data and domain knowledge to make data sets “research ready”.
  • Supports key challenges in academic research such as reproducibility, anonymisation, data history, security and audit.
  • Rapid and reproducible study cohort identification and linkage across data sets.


The RDMP allows HIC to provide pre-selected, research-ready data more accurately and rapidly, with improved meta-data. Development of the RDMP is ongoing to further expand its support for new data types such as images and genomic data.

The RDMP has been written in an extensible manner such that it could be used by any research data provision / safe haven service. We are currently looking for academic/technical collaborators from other institutions that provide a similar service and may benefit from this software.
