2012 European Summit on Trustworthy Reuse of Health Data – plenary sessions now available on YouTube
31 August 2012
In May 2012 the Director of UCL CHIME, Professor Dipak Kalra, joined other European and international academic, public health, industry, government and user representatives in Brussels to take forward the process of developing guidelines for trustworthy reuse of health data.
The meeting, attendance at which was by invitation-only, was hosted by IMIA – the International Medical Informatics Association, of which UCL CHIME is an institutional member. The summit's ultimate goal was encouraging organisations to create and maintain the conditions necessary for health records, methods and expertise to be shared on a large-scale for meaningful real-world data reuse.
The current lack of a common framework for their use and reuse makes it difficult to gain insights from these healthcare data uniformly across Europe and internationally. This, in turn, creates challenges for many local, national and international organizations that depend on interpreting these data for patient safety, drug and device development, as well as for patient care.
In addition to summit website containing the agenda, slides from presentations, and graphic artist captures of individual sessions, the overview and other plenary sessions are now available globally on a dedicated YouTube channel.
