This conference will examine the applications of data in health and social care and discuss measures that can be taken to scale up use, develop best practice guidelines, and support adoption across all levels of the health system.

It takes place following the draft NHS X strategy, Data Saves Lives, which aims to improve understanding around data, address barriers to delivery, and develop a new approach to data-sharing following the extensive use of data throughout the pandemic.

As the Government is currently proposing reforms to healthcare to support innovation and integration, this conference will be an opportunity to discuss the role of data in addressing key healthcare challenges going forward and what this approach should look like.

  • Assessing the use of data in the response to the pandemic and what is required to build on this going forward – from Adam Steventon, Director of Data Analytics, Health Foundation
  • Scaling up data use across the health system and meeting data infrastructure needs – from Des Holden, Medical Director, Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Science Network
  • Priorities for the future approach to utilising data within healthcare and research – from Dr Ben Goldacre, Lead, Goldacre Review and Director, The DataLab, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, University of Oxford
