The charity corporation, GambleAware, has begun to create a new partnership with ViewItUk Ltd, in an effort to help increase the amount of information they gather for their “National Gambling Treatment Services”.
Since they specialize in gathering data, as well as new insights to provide the visualization of health-related networks across the country, VewItUk has been given the go-ahead by GambleAware to help charge the operation in collecting all the data needed in order to pinpoint the individuals who are connected to the treatment made by the National Gambling Treatment Service. This will be those who received this help through the funded services formed by this very same company.
ViewItUk will be enhancing its visual range to include the data collecting skills of the other branches connected to GambleAware. This will include the treatment operators such as the National Gambling Helpline and any other separate services dealing with treatment across the country.
Chief Executive of the GambleAware company, Marc Etches, said that GambleAware’s decision completely proved the work into the data systems that helped contribute to the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms. This was a code of conduct released by the UK Gambling Commission back in April.
If the organization is able to review the data from the entire network of treatment services, this will prove absolutely vital in pinpointing the real issues within the gambling community and help strengthen the treatment that people who suffer from these issues may desperately need.
A statement released by all three leading Directors of ViewItUk, Dr Andrew Jones, Dr Yousef Taktak and Prof Michael Donmall said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with GambleAware, a charitable organisation supporting the treatment of gambling addiction, through agencies targeting successful patient outcomes.”
In a joint statement, they said that the technology that managed the data, as well as the visualization of such problems, would create vital opportunities for the development of more comprehensive treatments across the whole country.
