Workshop: Sharing Patient Data Between Hospitals, Researchers, Government and Scientific Industries

The Centre for Cambridge Clinical Informatics is holding a public opinion workshop on how best to share patient medical records between healthcare providers, researchers, government bodies, and scientific industries. They will discuss data sharing with regards to developing new healthcare products, medications, and treatment methods. They aim to share the information they gather with policy makers and those involved in healthcare research to help support a community-formed policy on health data management.

Discussion topics:
• sharing data
• selling data; and
• the best methods of healthcare providers working with government, researchers, and scientific industries.

Everyone is welcome to attend this free event, particularly patients, and their families and carers.
