Oct 26 2017 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Venue: Edinburgh Napier University, Merchiston Campus

Data Lab Events

Prof Bill Buchanan OBE, PhD, FBCS - Data, Health and Well-being: Security, Sharing and Analytics

This Meetup will outline how data can drive improved health care and well-being, and outline a range of research projects which use data as a key driver for improved care. This includes data capture of well-being information within the home, and how this can be used to detect citizens at risk. The event will also outline new architectures and methodologies for the sharing of health and social care data across the agencies involved within the care of the citizen. Along with this, though, there are increased requirements to integrate security into data capture, storage, analysis and reporting. The security and resilience issue will be heightened with forthcoming GDPR and NIS regulations, and where organisations need to look at new methods in protecting their data infrastructure.
