IEN Innovation workshop: The use of Big data in health

27–28 January 2020 | BerlinGermany

The ISSA European Network (IEN) is organizing an Innovation workshop on the topic of the use of Big Data in health, from 27 to 28 January 2020 in Berlin, hosted by the German National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds (GKV-Spitzenverband).

The increasingly widespread use of electronic health records, as well as the rise of smartwatches and other connected objects that are becoming increasingly popular and present in our lives, create a vast volume of information that can be of great help to improve the quality of health care and global health, support health promotion and prevention initiatives, as well as participate in the reduction of health costs.

This IEN Innovation workshop will provide a platform to discuss the strategic impact and potential of Big data analytics, as well as the challenges linked to their collection, analysis and use, from a technical, organizational and ethical point of view. It will also look at the potential development and new opportunities brought by Big data.

The aim of this IEN Innovation workshop is to present and discuss innovative solutions and the potential of this technology, leaving room for working groups and discussion among participants.

The IEN Innovation workshop will be held in English and is open to ISSA member organizations from the European region. Due to the interactive nature of this event, the capacity will be limited to 30 participants, with a limit of two per member.
