Event Details

Open data has been at the forefront of recent health policy debates, bringing with it many questions around usefulness, safety and privacy.  Despite these challenges, open data has already contributed to cost reductions in prescriptions; while the publication of information on death rates has similarly resulted in improved outcomes for adult cardiac patients. The promise of using open data to increase accountability and quality of care should therefore not be overlooked.  The timely question then is how and where can we use open data to encourage innovation and improve outcomes in primary care in meaningful ways?

 

Building on Nesta’s recent report,Which doctors take up promising ideas? New insights from open data, this event will explore how open data can improve the quality of our primary care services and achieve better patient outcomes throughout NHS England.  Discussion will focus on several key questions:

 

  • How are GPs and health intermediaries already making use of open data?
  • How can GPs and primary care providers benefit from open data?
  • How can health providers and intermediaries (like AHSNs and CCGs) support and encourage better use of open datasets?  

 

Our expert panel will include Professor Richard Barker OBE, Director of the Centre for the Advancement of Sustainable Medical Innovation(CASMI), Fran Bennett, Cofounder of Mastodon C, Michael Macdonnell, Head of Strategy for NHS England, and will be chaired by Stian Westlake (Executive Director of Policy and Research at Nesta).


Registration opens at 9.00am The event starts promptly at 9.30am.
