The data challenge: How and why do we measure patient outcomes?
A Science|Business event, in partnership with
In the UK, as across the EU, there is growing interest in improving the effectiveness of our healthcare systems by measuring what patients themselves think about it: What was the outcome of their treatment? But this is easier said than done.
The problem is in the data. Are we measuring the right things? Do we have the systems to gather the data? Will healthcare workers cooperate? Will administrators properly analyse the data? And will policy makers act on it? These are a series of classic Big Data problems that arise in many other fields, but are especially tricky in as politically sensitive a field as health management.
