How to deploy data at scale in healthcare environments




Big data and AI have huge potential to improve healthcare efficiency and effectiveness. Data-driven technologies are now widely celebrated as an integral part in the future of medicine. However, for research and healthcare delivery to harness the wealth of this data, certain challenges must be overcome in the form of existing practices, regulation, training, and knowledge.

Join EIT Health Ireland-UK’s first webinar in its ‘Transforming Healthcare’ series as leading industry experts share their perspectives on how to address these issues. Expect to learn about:

  • The common barriers facing healthcare organizations in deploying data at scale
  • The steps healthcare organisations can take to easily carry out AI and ML, with examples of how this data can drive innovation
  • Why cloud is the preferred platform for leveraging health data and analytics
  • New thinking to reinvent the protection of patient data privacy and consent
