Patients First: Why Open Data Can Save Healthcare

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The US and UK governments have put open data at the heart of current health reforms. In both countries, transparency has become a focal point for improvements in clinical quality and the cost effectiveness of services. This session is led by two of the architects of this transatlantic Big Data revolution - Greg Downing, Executive Director for Innovation at HHS, and Beverely Bryant, Director of Strategic Systems and Technology at NHS England - who argue that transparency has the power to transform patient outcomes, drive digital innovation and create unprecedented opportunities for science and economic growth. They will describe plans to release vast amounts of new data and how they propose to make this easy to access for entrepreneurs, patients and professionals. The UK is launching Code for Health - a new initiative to train clinicians and patients to develop their own applications. Find out how you can join the global data revolution in health.
