Harmony is an innovative tool developed collaboratively by Ulster University, University College London, the Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, and Fast Data Science. Recognised with the prestigious Wellcome Mental Health Data Prize, Harmony is revolutionising data integration in the field of mental health research.

Transforming Mental Health Research 

Harmony allows researchers to upload mental health questionnaires in various formats, including PDF or Excel, such as the GAD-7 anxiety questionnaire. Utilising transformer neural network architectures, Harmony identifies identical, similar, or contrasting questions among questionnaires, enabling efficient data harmonisation. 

Seamless Integration with Catalogue of Mental Health Measures 

Harmony seamlessly integrates with the Catalogue of Mental Health Measures, an interactive repository featuring mental health and wellbeing measures from British cohort and longitudinal studies, providing access to a comprehensive array of data. Through Harmony’s integration with the Catalogue, users can explore mental health measures with ease, fostering collaboration and enhancing data accessibility. 

Driving Collaboration and Innovation 

Led by Dr. Eoin McElroy from Ulster University and Dr. Bettina Moltrecht from University College London, Harmony’s development aims to promote better integration of data harmonisation in mental health research. By facilitating investigations into the active ingredients of mental health and addressing critical questions surrounding human connection, Harmony fosters collaboration and innovation.
