Our Trustworthy Research Environment (TRE) platform is fast to implement, fully managed and certified compliant with the most stringent standards of security and data protection.
More than data
Only a handful of companies in the UK have the specialist knowledge and credentials for building trustworthy research environments. Of these, ARO is arguably the most experienced.
As well as up-to-date expertise and accreditations in the technical principles and best practices for TRE design and implementation, we have a sound grasp of institutional processes, research ethics and the regulations governing IT infrastructure, data ownership and security in healthcare settings.
With over 60 years of collective experience delivering technology solutions in highly regulated environments, we’re one of the UK’s only service providers accredited by regulatory health data custodians to deliver secure, compliant access to sensitive health data for research programs.
Our cloud computing platform is housed in an accredited and approved UK facility with secure connections to public and private networks including HSCN and data sources. All infrastructure is wholly owned by ARO and located in the UK to ensure data sovereignty and an unbroken chain of custody.
