Health Data Day 2023: Exploring the Potential of Health Data and AI in Healthcare

Health data is any information related to our health, traditionally stored in medical records and lab reports. With digital technology, we have access to more sources like genetics, heart rate monitors, and more. The use of data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare is rapidly expanding, and the potential for growth is enormous. Experts predict that our knowledge of health will increase significantly in the next 50 years, with much of this knowledge being defined as “health data”. This data can come from a variety of sources, including medical records, wearables, and mobile devices, and can be used to personalize treatments and improve health outcomes.

As the use of health data continues to grow, it is important to consider the legal and ethical implications of data ownership, access, and use, to ensure that individuals’ rights and privacy are protected.

Health Data Day 2023, taking place on 10th May in Oslo, Norway aims to uncover the potential of health data in healthcare. The conference will host a lineup of industry experts and thought leaders from both the public and private sectors, who will provide insights on legal, technical, ethical, and practical issues surrounding the use of health data. The event will offer a comprehensive view of the opportunities and challenges in using health data.
