CEO Rupert speaks at IBM Watson event on AI and Data Analytics

In March, CEO Rupert spoke at the IBM Watson Health event on the role of Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics in transforming healthcare.

Rupert discussed the importance of linking clinical, cost and operational datasets to ensure timely outcomes reporting, as well as how the unlocking of data could help achieve better, informed care decisions across pathways. He also emphasised the need to measure outcomes for healthy populations in addition to those who are already being treated for an illness, stating that this was an essential step forward in the proactive analysis required in order to effectively implement targeted prevention strategies.

The event, hosted at the King’s Fund and delivered in partnership with IBM Watson Health, discussed the latest opportunities that science and technology can bring to health and care, including their role in actioning the government’s focus on prevention outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan.
