Come along to the launch of the One Healthtech (OHT) Hub for Wales. Angela Maragna, Managing Director of One Healthtech, will open the event by introducing the concept and vision of OHT to Wales. The very first event will focus on the challenge of data across health and care.

How can we access data? Understand it? Share it? Do good with it?

There is no doubt how important a role data plays in providing the very best care to patients and how vital it is for research. But what more could we be doing? Helen Thomas, Director of Information Services, NHS Wales Informatics Service, will give her take on the recent Statement of Intent from Welsh Government on how we can get the most from health and care data. A panel of speakers from across sectors will be giving us their perspectives on the challenge of data and be answering your questions.
