CLEF aims to join up clinical care and biomedical research. It is developing methods formanaging and using pseudonymised repositories of the long-term patient histories which can belinked to genetic, genomic and image information or used to support patient care. CLEFconcentrates on removing key barriers to managing such repositories ? ethical issues, informationcapture, integration of disparate sources into coherent ?chronicles? of events, user-orientedmechanisms for querying and displaying the information, and compiling the required knowledgeresources. This paper describes the overall information flow and technical approach designed tomeet these aims within a Grid framework. Details of work on language technology and ethicalissues are discussed in separate papers at this conference.
