HL7-EFMI Workshop

Title: Connected health data meet the people: diversity, standards, and trust.

Time: Thursday May 11, 2017, 11:45 - 13:00, Room Jupiter.

Abstract: Navigating health data in a connected world requires a personal digital health compass calibrated to individual personalities and needs, coupled with focused actions to develop new competencies. This session discusses strategies for empowering and activating people to cultivate a culture of productively sharing and dynamically using health data by patients, informal caregivers, and health team. Such strategies acknowledge diversity and trust, and can employ standards like HL7 FHIR to open up and manage data safely through trusted third parties.

Mobile Ecosystem Forum workshop

Building trust in personal data

Time: Wednesday May 10, 2017, 12:15 – 13:15h, Room Jupiter.

Abstract: This workshop previews the findings of a new global consumer study looking at Trust. It reveals valuable insights into consumer motivations and behaviours highlighting new opportunities for digital health as well as identifying personal data challenges for greater adoption.

The workshop is hosted by MEF, a global trade body representing diverse stakeholders in the mobile ecosystem.

Its Consumer Trust Working Group looks at data stewardship and innovation of personal data. Each year it conducts a survey of mobile media users to understand their attitudes and behaviours to trust. It tracks consumer understanding and attitudes when it comes to data collection, usage, privacy & security. With the advent of the General Data Protection Regulation in the EU it asks consumers how they want to manage and protect their data.

Open to all delegates. Complimentary.
