CRY's New Screening and Research Database

Due to the rapid expansion of CRY’s research and screening programmes, we are in need of purchasing a bespoke database. This will be a cloud-based system enabling CRY to build on the success of our screening and research programmes and develop worldwide collaborations between international partners.

  • Need


    Currently it takes a long time for our research fellows to input data into the various databases that we currently have.


    The benefits of streamlining our data by creating a far more efficient data flow, thereby reducing the amount of time spent by our research fellows inputting data, would have a huge impact on the cost-effectiveness of our programmes. This system could therefore allow CRY to screen even more young people meaning that we could identify more people with cardiac conditions, potentially saving young lives.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Increase the cost-effectiveness of CRY's screening and research programme.


    » Develop a new screening and research database to streamline our data, creating a far more efficient data flow.

    What success will look like

    The reduction in time for our research fellows inputting data could potentially allow them to undertake more screenings.

  • Impact


    CRY will be able to screen more young people. To demonstrate this, we will compare the number screened before the new database to the number screened after the database.




    Update them on the benefits of the new database and provide them with information about how the database has improved CRY's screening and research programme.

  • Background




    Young people who are being screened by CRY and it will also benefit the work of CRY by making our screening and research programmes more efficient.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    We offer a unique service to the public as CRY is the only charity offering proactive cardiac testing to young people.

    CRY is best know in the UK for raising awareness, support and screening. However, internationally we are better known for our publications and research findings which are changing international policies and procedures on the way we test young people.
