Medinfo2013 Highlights No. 4 – Panel on Trustworthy Use of Health Data

One of IMIA’s major new activities in the past two years has been the activity focused around the 2013 Transnational Summit on Trustworthy Use of Data for Health, held in Brussels, Belgium in June 2013 and the 2012 Summit. The Summits focused on stimulating robust discussions about the use of data for health at the global level, although with a specific focus on the European level.

A panel on Wednesday 21 August, from 13:45-15:15, and titled “The IMIA Initiatives on Trustworthy Reuse of Health Data: A Report” will summarise the activities and outputs from these two events, and a number of linked meetings including a stakeholder consultation meeting held with the WHO. Lead by Prof. Riccado Bellazzi, the panel will include presentations from Iain E. Buchan, Steve E. Labkoff, Antoine Geissbuhler and Charles Safran, and will provide opportunity to hear about the meetings and discuss what is needed for ongoing activity.
