Big Data in Healthcare Conference: Improving outcomes through data sharing
“Our overarching objective is that by 2020 we will have revolutionised the way technology, data and information are used to transform the delivery of England’s health and social care services.” – NHS Digital
Analysing the vast amount of data held by the NHS allows decision makers to better understand public health trends and commission services accordingly. As well as improving health outcomes, the ability to share patient information rapidly between different organisations has the potential to cut waiting times and drive back office efficiencies. Moving forward, the spread of wearable tech and health tracking smartphone apps will make it even easier for medical professionals to collect data on their patients. But with the many opportunities provided by this growing amount of data comes a number of challenges. The lack of a single shared digital infrastructure across the NHS places limitations on data sharing while the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation in 2018 will bring greater restrictions on the way this information can be used and stored.
Join us for the Big Data in Healthcare Conference where expert speakers from across the health and technology sectors will explain how data use and analytics will shape the future of the NHS. Study examples of how big data can drive quality, understand the benefits of data sharing between health and social care providers and ensure your data security measures are up to standard.

Seminar A to be delivered by: Confluent
The Streaming Platform: Apps, Connectivity and Insight
Today we face problems very different to those seen a decade ago. Systems span devices, geographical regions, data centers and technology stacks. Moreover they are expected to deal with ever increasing data-centric workloads, reacting and responding in real-time.
In this seminar we will look closely at Streaming Platforms implemented with Apache Kafka: what a streaming platform is and how it forms a data backbone that connects disparate ecosystems of devices, applications and analytics, dipping into real-world use cases as we do so.
