Standardisation in the Health Sector
In an era where healthcare is rapidly evolving, incorporating new technologies and appliances, standardisation has never been more critical. On 7 September 2023, from 3:00-5:00 PM (CEST), the HSbooster.eu project will hold a webinar titled “Standardisation in the Health Sector” to explore this subject. The session is set to delve into integrating standards in pivotal areas such as health informatics, artificial intelligence, risk management of health IT systems, and their alignment with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These standards ensure consistency and reliability in healthcare practices and pave the way for innovations that can revolutionise patient care.
The webinar will offer many insights, from the significance of standards in 21st-century healthcare to the role of AI standards in creating a holistic healthcare approach. It will also address the challenges posed by the heterogeneity in healthcare data and how formal ontology can provide solutions. Furthermore, the event will highlight the importance of risk management standards in the ongoing digital transformation of healthcare. A panel discussion will allow attendees to engage with experts and delve deeper into these topics. As the healthcare sector stands on the brink of major technological advancements, understanding and implementing these standards will ensure quality, interoperability, and innovation in healthcare delivery.
