As part of an OECD Forum series, the virtual event Healthcare in the Digital Age took place on Thursday, 3 December.
This event has now ended and registration is closed – but don't worry, you can still watch the replay!
This session was an opportunity to discuss the role of data and AI in the COVID-19 response (e.g. understanding the virus, accelerating research on potential treatments, improving disease detection and early warning tools), and the impact of the pandemic with regard to the significant scale-up of telemedicine. It explored how we may best go about harnessing the benefits of digitalisation in heath by ensuring privacy, liability, fairness, and trust, whilst improving data quality, interoperability and security through better data stewardship.
