Health Care in the UK is facing many issues such as the lack of adoption of data gather for predictive analytics in health and social care. This is exacerbated by the increased demands of an ageing population. In the future, systems need to be created in a way that are more patient-centric, and which allow for citizens to be cared for in a holistic way.

This conference presents some of the research and best practice within next generation health care infrastructures for large-scale data integration across domains and stakeholders, and how they could bring benefits to all involved. A key focus will be defining methods to integrate care plans and health information across scalable e-Health Cloud based systems, and how ownership and rights can be integrated into captured data and events.

The programme has three major themes:

  • Application Development in Health and Social Care/Data Analytics.
  • Clinical Systems/Data Integration/Health Care Architectures.
  • Health and Social Care integration/Co-design.

The conference will showcase a number of different projects with data integration within health and social care, and will also include a Hackathon for App Development in Health and Social Care.
