Baroness Camilla Cavendish, M-RCBG Research Fellow, will host guest Dr. Timothy Ferris for a discussion on how AI, data and analytics might save both lives and healthcare systems, with case studies from the US and Europe.  We will be considering the implications for health outcomes, data governance and patient power. 

Tim is internationally renowned for his pioneering work on improving health and care in both hospital and community settings. He is a Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, was CEO of Massachusetts General Physicians Organization and founded the Center for Population Health, which champions the use of prevention and data to improve health, reduce inequalities, and save lives. For the past two years he has been the NHS' National Director of Transformation with oversight of all technology procurement, data services, and analytics.

Camilla is an award-winning journalist and broadcaster, and former head of the Downing Street Policy Unit under Prime Minister David Cameron. She was a non executive director of the UK hospital regulator the Care Quality Commission, is author of two independent national reviews on health and care, and was an advisor to the Secretary of State for Health during the Covid pandemic. 

This study group / discussion is open to all. Registration is not necessary.
