Enterprise breadth IT Platform ORIS to support personalised cancer care

Ahead of the NOCRI Information systems workshop on the 17th October, we were researching some of the speakers and their organisations and came across ORIS, a cross-organisational research platform linking clinical, pathology, sample and genetic data for research and care provision purposes - being implemented by the Integrated Cancer Centre at King's Health Partners.

It occurred to us that for centres without the IT spend to support such an implementation, a virtualised offering with the same capabilities, centrally hosted by a major organisation such as Cancer Research UK would enable smaller institutions to link their data repositories across pathology, genetics, clinical systems and would also facilitate central aggregation (by agreement, of course) across institutions to derive novel linked datasets for research.... any thoughts?
