Symposium on Big Data and Risk Assessors in Health and Social Care

28/06/2013 Friday 28 June, 09:30, Merchiston Campus

As we move into an information age there are many opportunities to share and integrate data from many different sources, in order to provide holistic care. A key focus of this is the provision of pre-emptive diagnosis, which aims to predict illness and put in place care plans to improve the provision of health and social care. This Symposium looks at the methods which could be used to effectively use data to improve care, while protecting the rights of the citizen.
