Working Groups News

The PHUSE Working Groups, which are led by volunteers from major stakeholders, have been developing innovative solutions that address unmet computational science needs. Here, we will look to share the latest information around the PHUSE Working Groups, from workshops to white papers, project news and industry views. 


The Data Reviewer's Guide in XML project from the Optimising the Use of Data Standards Working Group have released v2.0 of the Prototype Package. This prototype release v2.0 package looks to provide a more stable version for industry early adoption and testing for a future final publication that encompasses all DRGs.

The Best Practice for Submission of Event Adjudication Data have released a White Paper mapping out the common practices and challenges for submissions of event adjudication data. Click here to download the paper. 


NEW: We are pleased to announce a new Co-Lead for the Educating for the Future Working Group to work alongside James McDermott. Greg Silva, is a director of Statistical Programming at AstraZeneca and has a background in computer science. Greg is hoping to building career paths based on education and grow the next generation of Data Scientists and strategic thinkers

NEW: The SEND Dataset QC Best Practices project is looking to develop recommendations for stakeholders for efficient and effective SEND QC practices. In order to explore the variety of QC procedures and tools among different stakeholders the team are asking members to participate in this short survey. This survey will close by the end of November. 

NEW: The PHUSE Key Performance Indicators & Metrics Project has established a set of common data reporting metrics which are more detailed than industry-wide metrics, therefore allowing a greater level of granularity in our project reporting, and business process management.

These metrics and their definitions are issued annually as a survey to life sciences industry companies in order to collect their information. The Year 2 survey is now being distributed to collate information from 20+ companies. Should you wish your company to participate, contact

Thinking of joining PHUSE?

Already a member but not sure how you can benefit?

PHUSE is an expanding, global society with a global membership of clinical data scientists. It requires a large pool of resources to help with its running, and so there are many opportunities for members to become involved. Whether it's chairing a conference, presenting at an event, leading a working group or contributing to the quarterly online newsletter, we are always keen to hear from volunteers.
