Is it OK for someone to give my Health Data to Google?
A two day conference showcasing the latest advances in the field of eHealth, Integrated Care and Care Quality Improvement takes place at the Strathclyde Technology Innovation Centre on 11-12 October, 2016. The leading annual event, now in its eighth year, is run by BCS Health Scotland Specialist Group, part of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.
David Evans, Director for Policy and Community, at BCS will be exploring the question: ‘Is it OK for someone to give my Health Data to Google?’
David says: “Every time we tap our smart phone, buy something, or visit a hospital, we are creating an overwhelming data footprint that travels all over the world with varying degrees of control and oversight. I will talk about how we need to keep striving for the full benefit of health data, with minimum harm to everyone.”
Speakers at the conference will also include:
- Paul Gray, Director-General Health and Social Care, Chief Executive of NHSScotland

Dr Matt-Mouley Bouamrane, Conference Chair for the event says: “The conference provides a fantastic opportunity to keep up to date with the latest advances in eHealth. The event is truly unique in bringing together leading policy and decision makers from Government and the NHS, leading suppliers in the health IT industry, senior academics in the field, as well as NHS staff at the front-line of innovative services delivery.”
The conference will form part of a two day programme which will be of interest to those working in the health IT industry, NHS, policymakers, academics and IT community.
