Big Data in Healthcare Conference

23 October 2019 - New Adelphi Theatre, University of Salford

How is the big data realistically going to revolutionise our healthcare?

Now in its third year, our Big Data in Healthcare conference will provide a comprehensive and practical overview of current solutions, ambitions and projects across both private and public sectors – where the mutual aim is to improve clinical outcomes for patients.

The concept of big data has had a lot of attention in recent years – and its potential has been fully realised by many companies, who are successfully implementing solutions based on big data analysis. The global big data in healthcare market was estimated to be worth $14.25 billion (£10.85 bn) in 2017, and is expected to grow over $68.75 billion (£52.37 bn) by 2025. However, there are a number of challenges associated with this ground-breaking field. Current data structures and models simply might not be capable of supporting the ambitious goals of integrated health records, and the volume of the data, as well as the storage patterns, are barriers that are proving to be difficult to overcome. However, the potential of the knowledge derived from the data patterns and AI-driven conclusions is enormous – suggested solutions include real-time patient monitoring, personalised medicine, and largely improved patient outcomes with more efficient life-style interventions being undertaken before clinical involvement becomes necessary.

Salford Professional Development are bringing experts and innovators in the area, to share practical advice, expertise and their experiences – in order to make these ambitions a reality. Join us for this informative day, to learn how you can contribute to effective data collection, prevent bias, and how you can help to protect patients while performing your daily tasks.
