MyData, MeData and OurData.

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.

Event has concluded. Watch the video highlights below from the event.
