Theme 9 - Big Data, Mobile Health

Harnessing Big Data to make better, quicker medical decisions is a logical development. However, this demands a delicate balance between individual patient rights and the wider public good. This theme explores how to reconcile these issues to maximise the benefits offered by harnessing available health data. How can Big Data improve patient outcomes and accelerate clinical development? What are the implications of data ownership, and what will be the role of social media in healthcare?

Conference Report: Better Science, Better Health: New Trial Pathways and Better Patient Data

  • October 31st, 2014
CONFERENCE REPORT: On October 21st, an international group of experts was invited to the Royal College of Physicians in London to discuss how new clinical regulatory pathways, sources of evidence, and evolving data on real world patients can be used both to expedite the development of drugs and improve their quality and access. Broadly called “MAPPs” (Medicines Adaptive Pathways to Patients), the goal is to speed patient access to needed therapies while increasing the productivity of industry R&D spending.
