    Dr Hamish Jamieson and Professor Tim David have been successful in gaining funding from the Canterbury DHB to investigate a large and growing data set associated with the elderly and their care. The work will initially investigate risk factors associated with mortality but eventually look at analysing more deeply the rich data hidden in this particular database. The data consisting of thousands of patients will be run on UC HPC beta test hardware kindly supplied by Hewlett Packard. It is hoped that with the dataset growing at an extremely fast rate the group will be able to analyse large datasets using parallel technology.
