Future Built on Knowledge

Big Data in Health. What it is. What it is not. What it is used for.

October 24, 2017

Who generates it? How can it be used in healthcare? What applications are already in place in Trentino, Italy and abroad? Can real-time and predictive analysis really save lives? What are the legal aspects, strengths, needs, future prospects? Next Friday, October 27, at the FBK Povo location, starting at 2:30 pm, a conference for Healthcare prociders based in Trentino, organized by TrentinoSalute 4.0.

The workshop entitled “Big data in healthcare – What it is. What it is not. What it is used for” will involve Big Data experts, managers, clinicians and researchers with the goal of discussing about the opportunities that the new IT knowledge in this area offers and build common strategies.

The event, for which invitation is required (but you can follow this link for live streaming), provides for two sessions, with a first session entrusted to experts, and a final round-table discussion dedicated to the debate with some of the players in the Trentino health system.

The talks by the experts will allow participants to understand how Big Data can be used to find faster solutions to problems, to monitor patients’ health and to help doctors identify disease causes, improve diagnosis, treatment, approach to pathologies and keep the spread processes of new epidemics under control.

The meeting will address one of the most sensitive and current topics in this area: privacy. In fact, access to health data allows clinicians to constantly monitor patients, but raises concerns about how to ensure confidentiality, since the technologies used are often not perceived as secure.

The final round-table discussion will be an opportunity to gather operational proposals and new opportunities for further exploration on the topic. This first meeting among industry professionals is in fact one of the goals that TrentinoSalute4.0 has set for the creation of shared value, which, in a field such as digital healthcare, should be generated not only for the specialists but also for the society in which it operates, resulting in tangible benefits to people, the economy and the local area.

What is the Center for Expertise on Digital Health – CCSD / TrentinoSalute4.0 program?

The purpose of Centro di Competenza sulla Sanità Digitale – TrentinoSalute4.0, the Digital Healthcare Expertise Center – TrentinoSalute4.0, is the creation in Trentino of a “shared space” and a “joint laboratory” that will support the development of digital healthcare in the Autonomous Province of Trento through a system approach, in which the initiatives already underway can be coordinated, so as to increase their impact.

The players in this project are the Autonomous Province of Trento (PAT), the Province Healthcare System (APSS) and Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), whose purpose is interinstitutional collaboration as a “meeting point” between the healthcare system, research and the local communities, thus becoming the cohesion tool among the healthcare planning objectives, the innovation needs expressed by the Province Healthcare System (SSP) and the opportunities offered by research and new digital technologies.
