Guest lecture: Tackling Bias and Inequities in Health and Genomic Data

Maxine Mackintosh
Programme Lead – Diverse Data & Co-founder
Genomics England & One HealthTech

Data and digital technology are now being used in all aspects of research, innovation and healthcare, but how do we ensure that the entire healthcare system benefits from these advanced technologies, specifically so that all people, especially those in underserved populations, receive the same quality of research benefit and care from innovations?
This talk will discuss the intersection of data science, health and equity, illustrated by the inequities rife in genomics (but no need to be a genomics expert to understand the talk!).
Studies of human genetics have largely focused on populations from WEIRD (Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, Democratic) countries which has resulted in genomic insights that are not generalizable to all populations.
Most studies, trials and papers conclude with a call to action to recruit and use more diverse genomes, and yet the proportion of non-European ancestries in genomic studies is diminishing.
To address this gap, we must work across the whole pipeline of genomic research and health care delivery, from the populations we work with and the data we collect to the analyses we carry out and the availability of genetic testing.
This talk will cover the complex challenges of taking an end-to-end approach to diversifying health and genomic data involves, and what we might do to reduce bias in our data-driven systems in precision medicine - something Maxine and her team are trying to do via the Diverse Data initiative at Genomics England.

Guest lecture: Prediction models for personalised preventative health: Past, present, future.

Niels Peek
Professor of Health Informatics
The University of Manchester

Prediction models are used to identify individuals who are at risk of poor outcomes and would benefit from preventative treatment.
They are widely used in cardiovascular disease prevention, cancer, mental health, and other domains. However, despite the availability of new methods (machine learning) and ever-expanding datasets, most models that are routinely used in the NHS are many years old, and few of them of have been evaluated for their effects on health outcomes.
We will present a new framework for the development, validation, and deployment of prediction models based on the concept of learning health systems and describe how new methods and technologies can contribute to better-personalised prevention for all.

Improving the efficiency and safety of EPR templates and eForms : a compelling application for computable knowledge libraries ?

Prof Jeremy Wyatt
Emeritus Professor of Digital Healthcare
University of Southampton
Prof Philip Scott
Professor of Digital Health & Care
University of Wales Trinity Saint David

GP templates and secondary care eForms are used widely in patient record systems to support more complete data capture and adherence to structured workflows.
However, these useful tools are not always based on the best evidence or well-curated, with potential consequences for patient safety and practitioner workload. We will facilitate a 45’ interactive session during which participants will explore different kinds of templates and eForms, describe how we construct templates, discuss the sources of knowledge embedded in templates and debate whether a centrally-curated computable knowledge library could make this process more efficient and safer.
We will provide the international context of global initiatives such as MCBK to improve the use and curation of computable knowledge to support Learning Health Systems use interactive question-answering tools to poll participants during the session, and share the resulting insights for wider discussion.
Participants in this session will ideally have experience of using GP templates or EPR eForms but need have no expertise in constructing these tools.
Participation will result in a deeper understanding of the benefits and challenges of using and constructing templates and eForms and potential ways to maximise their benefits and overcome the challenges.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

It was great to join the Convenzis team again for the patient flow event. As always, the team were incredibly accommodating and happy to help. The quality of attendees is always of a high standard and relevant to the patient flow and to us also. We continue to have great discussions and footfall around our stand with no need to try and encourage people to come and see us. Really positive event for us and we look forward to working with Convenzis in the future.

Catalyst BI -

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.

NHS BSA -

Covenzis delivered an excellent meeting like always - a hubbub of activity focused on future developments within NHS pathology laboratories

Source LDPath -

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience

Zoom

I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!
