Matariki Lecture: Big Data, cyber security and healthcare

Event Date: 
Feb 7, 2017
Event Location: 
Britton Smith Foundation Lecture Theatre
School of Medicine/ Abramsky House

Big Data offers both great promise but also serious perils for healthcare, as it does for other institutions of modern life. The rush to turn the promise into reality, however, without understanding how Big Data analytics change those institutions, has important implications, both positive and negative. For the institution(s) of health care delivery, the use of Big Data will require changes in information governance that affect not only the security and privacy of health information, but also the role of patients, the profession of medicine, and the meaning of health itself.

As part of the Matariki Network of Universities (MNU) Lecture Series, Queen's will be hosting Dr. Denise Anthony, Vice Provost for Academic Initiatives, and Professor of Sociology from Dartmouth College. Dr. Anthony's lecture is also part of the Big Data 175 Event. Her lecture on “Big Data, cyber security and healthcare” will take place on February 7, 2017. The reception is at 5:30 pm, with the lecture beginning at 6:30 pm.
