This timely seminar will bring out latest thinking on the way forward for using Big Data in healthcare.
It comes with the Prime Minister highlighting the opportunities provided by Big Data and artificial intelligence to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
The agenda also looks at concerns surrounding the increasing use of patient data and what measures can be taken to ensure public confidence in the handling of data, which are being examined in the Science and Technology Select Committee’s inquiry into algorithms in decision making - as well as the introduction of new legislation such as EU GDPR and the Data Protection Act.
Further sessions will consider the challenges presented to the NHS workforce and - as the Topol Review seeks evidence ahead of its final report on digital skills in the NHS - how technology might affect the nature of work for NHS staff, as well as the impact on education and training.
