Intersections: data, power, and the role of the public
2 Apr

The conversation about data in healthcare swings between two extremes.

For some, sharing patient data is a breach of patient trust, a dangerous foundation for the future of privacy. For others, not sharing data carries its own risks; how can patients receive the best care if providers don’t have access to critical information? How can new treatments be developed at pace without analysing historic data?

This event will bring together healthcare providers, patients, technology specialists, and startups for a conversation about data, AI and, most importantly, the role of the public.
