In The Cyber Academy, we want to build a better world ... a fairer one ... a more robust one ... a smarter one ... and a healthier one. You may not know it but we've been working on one of the greatest barriers to the advancement of health and social care in the UK ... the trust and governance of data, and in consent.

With new ways of working we can analyse health risks around citizens, and even predict the onset of illnesses. Over the past decade we've been working on how to share data within health and social care, and even have a successful spin-out company: Symphonic Trust.

Things are really moving with our work, with lots of impact, including some exciting new projects coming up. Part of the creation of new health and social care infrastructures involves everyone getting involved with the debate in how data should be shared and in the developments of new data-focused services.

So, in The Cyber Academy, we have a conference on 5 October 2016 on the usage of data within health and social care:

e-FRAIL
Scottish Frailty Framework with Mobile Device Capture and Big Data Integration. The proposed innovation will develop and extend the current work into Frailty, with the long term focus on encompassing not only clinical factors, but economic, environmental and social factors.
eHealth
The way healthcare is delivered changes rapidly. The reasons are demographic and societal changes, austerity and rapid progressive technologies. Care models are shifting from specialist oriented hospital based to distributed, patient centred care.
