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.
Aim and Scope of Symposium

assessors for improvements in health and social care. Overall the key
areas covered include:
- Analysis methods for Big Data related to health and social care.
