THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will be a timely opportunity to consider next steps for data protection, cyber security and patient records in the NHS.
Delegates will assess further measures to upgrade cyber security in the NHS to implement the EU directive on the security of Networks and Information Systems (the NIS Directive), as well lessons to be learnt from last year’s WannaCry attack - with the Government recently announcing plans for a further £150m to improve the NHS’s resilience against attacks over the next three years.
There will also be discussion on key issues for the Data Protection Bill currently going through Parliament, and how well NHS organisations are complying with EU GDPR legislation to ensure data security standards are upheld.
The seminar follows the Prime Minister’s recent announcement that the UK will use data, artificial intelligence and innovation to transform outcomes of people with chronic diseases as part of the AI and Data Grand Challenge.
Further sessions focus on progress of Local Digital Roadmaps in achieving the Government’s commitment to interoperable paperless care by 2020, the potential for data analytics to improve population health outcomes, and the role of clinicians, Chief Information Officers and other NHS staff in supporting patients and driving innovation.
