HealthInsight Workshop: Methods for Working With Healthcare Data, Oslo, 31st May 2017

Purpose of the workshop

To bring together the community to learn about examples of reuse of healthcare data and methods for working with large and varied datasets.


Huge quantities of complex and diverse data are generated everyday in healthcare institutions, including clinical documentation (diagnostics, lab data, imaging data, etc.), administrative data, activities and cost data, and R&D data from clinical trials. We have invited speakers to talk about a broad range of topics related to connecting and and analyzing health-care datasets.
