Digital Health Data: what types of value can be generated & how do we do it

Science & Technology

A debate/discussion event about digital health data and how to use it to improve patient outcomes.

Data held by the NHS is huge resource, with major potential benefits to patient outcomes if digital health data can be brought together, both in terms of clinicians (and patients) having access to all the data needed to help make the best decisions, and in terms of large datasets providing significant insights for medical research. But it is a difficult task, and there are issues of data quality and scalability of data curation, along with issues of trust, governance, privacy and ethics. In this meeting we will explore all these issues, consider where we are today in the UK and what the next steps need to be.

Speakers at the event will include:

  • Caroline Cake, Deputy Director of Health Data Research UK
  • Dr Saira Ghafur, Lead for Digital Health, Institute of Global Health Innovation, Imperial College London
  • Natalie Banner, Understanding Patient Data lead, Wellcome Trust

The event will be chaired by Lord Willetts.

After the speakers, there will be an extensive period of Q&A. The event will be followed by a networking reception.
