A big data approach for challenges in health tech

According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) report, usage of big data is growing faster in healthcare. As global connectivity increases and technology flourishes, healthcare has undergone a wave of digitisation leaving researchers hopeful in translating clinical knowledge to find cures, improve patients’ quality of life, preventative measures and increase preventable care. Big data has been described as volume, velocity, and variety, and with new massive sources of information, such as genomic identity and global patient environment, provides an opportunity for unconventional ways of understanding complex diseases.

But how feasible are these open and data-driven approaches in the health tech space? Is health research ready to be tackled with inclusive open data settings?

The first Global Business Innovation Conversation for 2019 will explore digital health and bring together experts to discuss:

  • What is the value of open data to tackle challenges in health?

  • How can we ethically handle patient and health data?

  • How can we put in place inclusive data initiatives for tackling challenges in health tech?

  • How should the Australian health space tackle these challenges?

  • How can we build viable health tech start-ups in Australia?

Don't miss the opportunity to connect with academics, researchers and industry specialists.

Conversation 2: Manufacturing Rebooted

How will your organisation thrive with new innovations and technology?
Major trends, such additive manufacturing, IoT, nanotechnology and augmented and virtual reality have not just driven innovation in product development but is disrupting leaders to revisit business models.

Flickr /


How can manufacturers leverage innovative technologies in the business model context?

The development of new technologies is disrupting the traditional business models of manufacturing, opening opportunities to pursue untapped markets, and driving innovation in the area of product development. 

Disruption opens the playing field for start-ups and SME’s, with leading manufacturers equally focused on leveraging technology and business model innovation. The impact of major trends such as additive manufacturing, nanotechnology and the Internet of Things have forced leaders to rethink innovation in manufacturing, redefine functions of their business and revisit business models. 

Global Business Innovation Conversations – Manufacturing Rebooted will explore:

  • innovative business models using new technology;

  • beyond innovation, collaboration and co-creation opportunities; and

  • maximising data exchange to improve services, process systems, supply chains, and how to measure success.

The conversation will explore co-creative opportunities and ask the question - is collaboration enough?

If you’re in the business of manufacturing or operate within the manufacturing environment, join the conversation and collaborate with innovators, designers, technologists, academics and business experts. Adapt and plan for innovation to thrive in the fourth industrial revolution.

Conversation 1:  Connected Health

Conversation 1: Connected Health

Ground-breaking innovation has transformed the health
sector - but at what risk?
Join global executives, clinicians, medical researchers and data experts in conversations exploring the opportunities and risks for providers.


Across Australia and around the world, innovators of all sizes - start-ups, SME's to health-tech powerhouses, are working together using technology, medicine and data, to improve clinical outcomes and human experience.

Some of the latest trends we have seen enter the health sector - operating and nano robots, remote health management, vision for the blind and exoskeletons, have developed through the reinterpretation and translation of data into artificial intelligence (AI) for an enhanced user experience (UX).

But with every technological development, invites the risk of personal data and information to fall into the wrong hands. Your data (MyData), suddenly becomes the world's data (OurData).

Guest speaker Professor Minna Pikkarainen of Connected Health, University of Oulu has worked on ‘connected health’ projects in Finland integrating data at many different levels. Recognised as one of the leading countries pioneering innovation, Professor Minna Pikkarainen will share the latest findings express from Finland, and provide concrete examples of the data usage in various cases in preventive and more acute care contexts.

These include 'Mydata’ with the individual consent in preventive healthcare field, using personal 'me data' collected by individuals e.g. in home and emergency care field, as well as using organizational data collected e.g. from hospitals and companies.

How can we combine the industry's need for data with digital human rights?

Experts and executives from relevant health and tech organisations will present alongside Professor Minna Pikkarainen, and participate in a panel discussion on the discovery and research of innovation and technology gaining ground in the health sector.
