Is data the glue that will help us mend a fragmented care system?  The what, why and how

Extracting knowledge and insight from vast amounts of data is seen as the biggest enabler to the transformation of health and care. As we move closer to regional and population-based health and care, data is more important than ever in driving the prevention agenda, in understanding the health needs of our populations, measuring the impact of new care models and eliminating barriers to integrated care. What’s less clear is what good looks like and how we tackle deep seated challenges such as privacy and the lack of a single shared data sharing platform.

The March 2018 Executive Leadership Summit will explore these issues, hearing from national leaders setting the data agenda, local innovators and suppliers that are showing what’s possible across the health system.  

To request an invitation to the event, please fill in our brief registration form and we will contact you shortly.
