Understanding Bristol's Health Stories

17 October 2017, 5.00 PM - 17 October 2017, 6.30 PM

The Hub, Unit 5-6, 1 Canon's Road, Bristol, BS1 5UH

Health, social care and academic organisations in Bristol hold information that can uncover stories about health and wellbeing in our city. For example:

  • How can sharing information transform care for homeless people?
  • What happened to the ‘Children of the 90s’ that were in care?
  • How can a patient’s GP record be linked safely with their hospital doctors?

Bristol Health Partners and the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute are developing an inventory of the information sources that can help develop such stories.

This workshop will explore real world examples of what happens to information about people’s health and our local health and care services. With you, we’ll discuss the big opportunities and big challenges related to the use of data.

At the session, we'll learn about the inventory’s development, and hear from local experts about how health data is used to plan and deliver services, and carry out health research. There will be panel presentations followed by round table discussions about how our region’s data is currently used, and how it may be increasingly effectively used in the future.

This workshop is part of Digital Bristol week. For more information please visit the Digital Bristol Week website.
