This seminar will be a timely opportunity to assess next steps for utilising data in healthcare.
Areas for discussion include addressing barriers to the adoption of data-driven technologies, supporting integrated patient-centred care, and engaging the workforce.
It is timed to assess the implementation of the Government’s new code of conduct for data-driven technology and artificial intelligence in the NHS, with further updates expected later this year.
The seminar follows the announcement by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care of £250m investment in artificial intelligence and the development of a new National Artificial Intelligence Lab, which will work to address some of the key challenges in healthcare - including for cancer, dementia and personalised care.
The agenda includes keynote addresses from Dame Fiona Caldicott, National Data Guardian for Health and Social Care; Professor Daniel Ray, Director of Data, NHS Digital and Ming Tang, Director, Data and Information Systems, NHS England.
