Event details

The analysis of big data is already generating economic and social benefits, but care is needed in applying these techniques in healthcare. This talk will explore five big challenges that need to be addressed to maximise the benefits of big data analytics in healthcare: 1. Data quality in healthcare 2. Developing sufficiently reliable inference methods to inform healthcare decisions 3. Confidentiality and the implementation of trusted research platforms 4. Data analyst capacity 5. Clear communication of analytical results
