We’re heading to the Big Data in Healthcare Conference on 25th October, where expert speakers from across the health and technology sectors will explain how data and analytics will shape the future of the NHS.
We know that NHS hospitals are incredibly complex structures with interacting processes and workflows and, in our opinion, the key to managing those processes and capacity better is contained within the incredible amount of data generated and stored by hospitals. We recently asked, ‘Can Analytics Save the NHS from Collapse?’ where we discussed the lack of adoption of data analytics technologies by the NHS – and reasons behind this. On the whole, analytics skills do not exist within hospitals [or in fact any secondary care organisation, nor GPs or CCGs] that are staffed for traditional IT. This needs to change.
NHS Digital recently said: “Our overarching objective is that by 2020 we will have revolutionised the way technology, data and information are used to transform the delivery of England’s health and social care services”. We hope this event is a step in the right direction to enable NHS managers and employees to make better decisions, leading to an all-round, better run NHS.
We’re looking forward to the event to hear more examples of how big data can drive quality, understand the benefits of data sharing between health and social care providers and how to ensure data security measures are up to standard.
