Data to the People – Towards a people-centred health data ecosystem

Let’s enable a sustainable health care business for humans!

The use of patient data is a controversial topic. The main question is: Why is it so complicated to leverage patient data in order to improve care pathways? Huge opportunities emerge through the use of patient health and disease data. However, it is extremely difficult to materialize value from such data. Is the root cause legislation like GDPR, data governance impairment, data interoperability impairment, wrong financial incentivations, non machine readable based documentation or are the expectations and promises not realistic? The usage of data can be in the context of research, medical treatment as well as administrative tasks. Overall, it can improve outcomes and reduce the financial burden of health services to the society. We open the discussion and would like to invite you to debate how patient data should be used.

Talks (in English) will be moderated by SI Board Member, Iris Zeyda.
