Maximizing Value From Government Health Data: A Federal View

11:30am - 12:30pm Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W303A

Description

Health and medical progress depends on the ability to share and use many kinds of data with stakeholders including patients, clinicians, and researchers. In 2019, the nonprofit Center for Open Data Enterprise (CODE) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) collaborated on a year-long project to improve data sharing for research, diagnosis, treatment, and healthcare delivery. The project, funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), included roundtables, white papers, and data policy recommendations. In this Essential Conversation, the facilitators will discuss data sharing strategies that HHS is applying and that can be used by businesses, academia, and nonprofits. Audience members will have the opportunity to engage with the presenters on topics including the use of health data for AI applications, strategies for balancing privacy with data access, and the use of high-value public data.
