Diagnosing the NHS: SynÆ initial meeting

location ODI Leeds | TBC in Q1 2019

Could synthetic data have the potential to help with real problems facing the NHS?

There is no denying that more open data - about health, the NHS, etc - could be incredibly useful to unlocking innovative solutions to many of the pressures that the NHS faces. Much of this data is already collected but never released in order to protect individuals (rightly so!).

Could 'synthetic' data be a solution? This is the process of analysing real data for the patterns and relationships that exist between all of the variables and values, then using those patterns to generate data that contains no real personal data but still acts the same way.

This is the intention in a new project collaboration between ODI Leeds and NHS England. We want your input. There is already an 'open document' for people to comment on. The 'closed session' will be a face-to-face kind of event, an opportunity to talk to those involved and find out more about the process of creating this synthetic data.

Register for in the 'closed session' via the button above so we can gauge interest.
