Healthcare is arguably the last major industry to be transformed by the information age. Deployments of information technology have only scratched the surface of possibilities for the potential influence of information and computer science on the quality and cost-effectiveness of healthcare.
As part of this School on Data Intensive Science we have organised a public evening lecture on Data Science in Healthcare. During this lecture, Professor Andrew Morris, Director of Health Data Research UK (HDR UK) will present the vision, objectives and scientific strategy of HDR UK. The opportunities provided by computer science and “big data” to transform health care delivery models will be discussed. Examples will be given from nationwide research and development programmes that integrate electronic patient records with biologic and health system data.
Since August 2017 Professor Morris has been the inaugural Director of Health Data Research UK, the multi-funder UK Institute for health and biomedical informatics research that will capitalise on the UK’s renowned data resources and research strengths to transform lives through health data science.
This lecture on Options and Opportunities for Health Data Science is open to everyone attending the School as well as the wider public. All School’ participants are automatically registered however, members of the public will be asked to register via https://indico.ph.liv.ac.uk/event/178/.
