Trusted Data Sharing Network

Delivering Workspaces – the trusted, secure, self-service, cloud-enabled digital research environment for biomedical, precision medicine and healthcare researchers

About Us

Based in Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University hospital and central Edinburgh, Aridhia was founded in 2007 by Dr David Sibbald, a software entrepreneur and philanthropist, and Professor Andrew Morris, the former Chief Scientist for Health in Scotland, Professor of Medicine, former Director of the Institute of Population Health Sciences and Informatics, Vice-Principal of Data Science at the University of Edinburgh, and Director of Health Data Research UK.

Our multidisciplinary team of data scientists, information governance specialists, computer scientists, software developers and healthcare experts delivers research services across the UK and Europe, working collaboratively with the NHS, research organisations, life sciences companies, IT service providers and patients to transform clinical research into clinical practice.

Our Approach

No matter where you look, three common themes emerge across research and healthcare: that collaboration, information governance and consumerism are key to accelerating research and driving innovation.

To meet these requirements we have created Workspaces – a collaborative digital research platform delivering secure, auditable workspaces that help biomedical research, precision medicine and healthcare teams address complex challenges by engaging personally, collaboratively and productively around data from multiple systems and sources.

Workspaces services are delivered via 3rd generation cloud technologies, allowing our clients to focus on the science while we take care of the technology. Today we are helping clients across different disciplines and organisations – from pharmaceutical companies to academic clinicians – to pool their knowledge, experience and data in order to advance scientific knowledge.
