Future Thinking – The Data Cure
Data has always been central to medical research but the growth of big data and the ability of thousands of people to generate it through wearable digital devices might be a game changer for medicine. And it might not come soon enough! Governments around the world are troubled by the increased cost of running a health system that will need to cater for an ageing population with complex set of ailments and high aspirations. Is big data part of the answer? It might be if its quality can be assured and patients’ privacy can be protected. Our panel of data, health and industry experts will explore this real world issue in a Real World Conversation.
The panel for this Real World Conversation is made up of:
Professor Kerrie Mengersen – Professor of Statistics, QUT Science and Engineering Faculty.
Associate Professor Adrian Barnett – Principal Research Fellow, QUT Faculty of Health.
Mal Thatcher – Chief Information Officer Queensland Health and former CIO of the Mater Hospital.
Kara Burns – Health photographer and PhD candidate with a professional interest in the ability of patient-generated data to create better outcomes and reduce future impost on the health system.
Professor Lisa Nissen – Head of Clinical Sciences School, QUT Faculty of Health
