Our health and social systems are full of examples where government and community organisations want to safely share date for a common good, but don’t know how.
The problem is that information is held by organisations with different technology, variable technical skills, complicated permissions and, often, a level of competing interests.
Synergia has been successfully pioneered linked data systems across health and social services. We believe solutions start with the democratisation of common data - to create opt-in systems, empowered by the right technological approach and common data governance.
In this seminar, we will discuss the barriers to linked data and explore practical solutions that bring together technological and process solutions, to create aligned interests across organisations. Data integration moves at the speed of trust.
Paul will use several examples of solutions, including a current project creating a national data commons for hospices. Examples will highlight the importance of aligning technical and relationship solutions. He will be joined by Mary Schumacher, the CEO of Hospice NZ, to discuss a national data commons that Synergia is developing for hospices.
Who is this aimed at:
- Programme and organisational leaders
- People involved in developing integrated services and interagency collaboration
- Technology and data strategists
- An understanding of practical solutions to link data
- How linked data can enhance performance and integration across organisations
- How linked data could support the work of your organisation
