Taking the pulse of data in healthcare and sport
White coats. Split-second decision-making. A strong sense of ethics. Although healthcare and sport may not seem to have a lot else in common, it is their shared view of data and analytics as tools for achieving breakthrough performance which unites them.
This exclusive invitation-only evening event brings together two leading figures from these domains to explain the impact they are delivering. From performance analytics to treatment outcomes, consumer apps to machine learning by health trusts, the speakers will explain their visions for treatments and tournaments in the age of the algorithm.
Daniel Ray, Director of Data at NHS Digital, was selected as number two in this year’s DataIQ 100 for the extraordinary work he is leading. From working out the right framework for ethical sharing of health data to putting patient records into their own hands, his initiatives are building a new, data-driven health service and saving lives as a result.
Damian Smith, Head of IT at England and Wales Cricket Board, has a remit that ranges from performance and health analytics for international players through to tracking tools and apps for recreational players, via match day technology and anti-corruption services. The result is changing how players play, spectators watch and new audiences engage with a traditional sport that is putting itself at the cutting edge of data and analytics use.
Our wonderful location for the evening is the Headquarters of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
