Priorities for utilising AI-driven technologies within health and social care

Morning, Monday, 28th March 2022


This conference will examine the priorities and next steps for utilising AI-driven technologies within health and social care.


Delegates will consider the opportunities for increased use, what is needed to tackle barriers to implementation, data protection, questions of ethics and bias, wider regulatory challenges, and priorities for research.


We are very pleased to be able to include keynote sessions with Dr Nicola Byrne, National Data Guardian for Health and Adult Social Care; Johan Ordish, Deputy Director, Software as a Medical Device, MHRA; and Dr Hatim Abdulhussein, Clinical Fellow, AI and Robotics, and Clinical Lead, Dart-Ed Programme, Health Education England.


It will be a timely opportunity to consider next steps for harnessing AI-based healthcare solutions to deliver streamlined and effective care following developments made during the pandemic - and in the context of the development of an AI Strategy for Health and Social Care.


Overall, the agenda will bring out latest thinking on:

  • priorities for the development of a national AI Strategy for Health and Social Care
  • addressing the key ethical and legal issues in the development of AI-based health solutions
  • key issues surrounding data security and sharing, priorities for ensuring patient anonymity, data confidentiality and providing transparency around data use
  • the future for research and innovation in the development of AI-driven technologies
  • priorities for workforce education and training around AI health solutions
  • addressing barriers to the use of AI in healthcare, developing digital infrastructure across the health service, and improving the diversity of clinical research data

The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from the DHSC; the DIT; the Government Legal Department; the ICO; the IPO; the MHRA; the DCMS; and The Scottish Government.
