Theme / Aims / Invitation
The theme for the 2012 SIHI conference is "Your Data, My Data, Our Data - opening up information for health and social care"
A major theme of the current health informatics agenda is access and control of personal health data. Who should see what? What should the patient/user control? When if ever should there be clinical 'filtering' of health record content? Can patient data be secured for research analysis by academic or commercial institutions?
The programme will focus on topics such as:
- regional exemplars of health informatics excellence and innovation across the care sectors
- the merits and achievability of giving all patients access to their health records
- how patient data can be safely and wisely re-used and aggregated for research purposes
- the rights and wrongs of information governance in the ever re-shaping NHS
- how information standards support joined-up care and commissioning
- learning from international case studies of personal health records
- latest technologies and standards for assisted living products and services.
The conference will address a broad range of issues related to our theme and showcase current projects that contribute to the development of health informatics.
Proposals are invited for presentations that address any of the above issues. Please send a 100-150 word abstract of your proposed talk to the Programme Chair as soon as possible. Proposals will be considered up until the time when the programme is finalised.
