Data Campfire Stories: Old Stories, New Solutions

About this event

Throughout years passed there have been a number of well known, not so well known, and truly mysterious data adversities within the healthcare sector – some of which are ongoing. This is largely due to the increase in data utilisation across public sector institutions, however with the right solutions and approaches we can make sure to address these adversities before they become rampant.

On Thursday 17th February, join Jon Smith and Zaira Shabir to hear more about:

  • The false re-emergence of smallpox in London Eye Hospitals
  • Why Clinical Data individuals who use back-reference diagnosis code don't call their partner by the nickname "Boo"
  • How technology can be used to identify and inhibit irregular data occurrences from developing further

This event will be a hybrid event, hosted physically and live-streamed from our Netcompany collaboration space in Leeds: 12 Greek Street, Leeds, 1st Floor, LS1 5RU.

Please indicate your preferred form of attendance when signing up.
