MASSES of WA burns patient data came into the spotlight late last year when Woodside data experts and medical specialists set their minds to finding better ways to help burns patients based on past cases. To mark Big Data Week (May 2-6) ScienceNetwork WA asked Woodside to reflect on the event’s success…

In December 2015, Woodside’s data scientists collaborated with the Fiona Wood Foundation in a DataHack, to analyse more than a decade’s worth of WA burns patient data in an effort to find better ways to treat burns victims.

The 12-hour event provided an opportunity to build our growing capability in data science while making a sustainable, positive contribution to health research and outcomes in Western Australia.

Woodside’s relationship with Professor Fiona Wood spans more than 20 years, currently supporting the Scarless Healing Appeal through the Centre of Excellence in Burns Research.
