“Big data and technologies in caring for patients with Diabetes Mellitus”

In this session firstly we will look at how in the United Kingdom large healthcare databases (“Big Data”) are utilised for improving care for patients with diabetes through audits, research and performance management. We will also discuss some of the innovative tools (DExtER: Data Extraction for Epidemiological Research) that we have developed to interrogate these large databases and how we conduct Automated Clinical Epidemiology Studies (ACES). We will give examples where data can help transform the care we provide for patients with diabetes in primary care and secondary care settings. Lastly we will look at how “emerging” technologies such as Clinical Decision Support Systems, Medical Apps and Artificial Intelligence can revolutionise the way we provide care for patients with diabetes in the coming years.

The seminars are an opportunity for the CCB Community and external speakers to present their work or topics of interest to the bioinformatics community.
