With the widespread use of electronic medical records, the availability of utilisation and billing information, and the dramatic growth in new types of data generated by wearable devices, mobile applications, and sensors, we have new opportunities.  We can now put this data to work for the benefit of clinicians, patients, citizens, researchers, planners and policy makers.  This comes at an important time for future of healthcare systems, with increasing pressures to do more with fewer resources, whilst maintaining quality.


This talk will review the key technology innovations that are driving the data revolution in healthcare, and the role of advanced analytics and cognitive computing in making this data meaningful and actionable. Examples of how it is enabling faster medical research, more personalised healthcare, more effective disease management, population health management and healthcare systems improvement will be presented and discussed.
