“The introduction of Qlik’s Data Discovery platform has resulted in changes far beyond greater efficiency. We used to be a data-crunching organisation, now we are a business intelligence organisation”

—Nadine Boczkowski, Head of BI, NIHR CRN


As part of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the Clinical Research Network (CRN) provides the infrastructure that allows high-quality clinical research to take place within the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. Consequently, patients reap the benefits of new and better treatments and the NIHR improves NHS healthcare for the future.
