Topic Name: De-identified data linkage for whole patient journey modelling
Topic Overview: Healthcare silos and lack of interoperability are impeding the wide use of patient generated health data in clinical practices. The current challenge is to link data to show the whole patient journey. Linked data, presenting a whole view of the patient journey, leads to better patient care and better population health management by enabling informed decision making and integrated patient-centred team care. Early intervention is essential to focus on prevention. Pen CS will demonstrate how this linkage method is currently being applied to create one health system that can inform population health management.
