How Much Do You Know About Big Data in Healthcare?
Published October 05, 2018
Medical professionals know that in many cases, personalized approaches to medicine and a focus on root causes can lead to better outcomes in many circumstances. And big data could play a crucial role in helping to achieve that end. But drawing on large pools of very personal data, from GPS coordinates and internet searches to at-home genetic tests, comes with serious risks to patient privacy.
Along with the NYU School of Medicine, the Academy is hosting a 2-day symposium exploring the ethical risks and rewards of incorporating big data into the healthcare landscape. We'll discuss how to navigate recruitment and consent in clinical trials; privacy protection and data ownership; corporate responsibility and compliance; and much more.
This event is sold out, however we will be livestreaming the full conference for those unable to attend in-person. Click here to learn more about how to join us via the web.
