Westminster Health Forum

The future of digital technology in the NHS - Big Data and AI, efficiency and outcomes, and addressing concerns

Morning, Friday, 23rd November 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This timely seminar will bring out latest thinking on the way forward for Big Data and artificial intelligence in the NHS and how it can be used to improve health outcomes - including its application in decision-making and the allocation of resources within trusts, its use in advancing clinical research, and opportunities for further innovation.


It comes as the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care identifies the greater efficiencies that could be achieved throughout the healthcare system in his vision for a more tech-driven NHS - and following his pledge of more than £400 million to transform technology in the NHS.


The seminar will consider the opportunities provided by Big Data and artificial intelligence to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease - with the Prime Minister recently highlighting advances achieved in the areas of cancer, diabetes and heart disease.


Delegates will also look 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 assess how staff can be supported to adapt work practices and utilise new technologies in healthcare - as the Topol Review seeks evidence ahead of its final report on digital skills in the NHS.
