Big Data, Health Data: how to unlock the potential of data while complying with IG, ethics and consent requirements

The NHS, industry and healthtech innovators are increasingly working in collaboration to meet health and care challenges. Programmes including the NHS Test Beds seek to combine technology with pathway innovation to deliver solutions. With the introduction of GDPR, it is essential to build products that meet compliance requirements ‘by design’ from the outset. This breakfast roundtable will look at key compliance issues including:

  • How to comply with general and NHS-specific data protection requirements when using big data analytics and artificial intelligence
  • Consent: what sort do you need, from whom and for what?
  • Legal, regulatory and ethical issues for IoT devices
