This data can then be loaded into a modern graph database and used to generate a temporal graph of the data. Using a specialist graph language for rapidly querying these graph databases, we are able to rapidly extract temporal path information about patient to patient contact networks based on shared ward encounters. This information can then be used to calculate various network statistics of interest that may be important for clinical use.
