Big Data Conference

31 January - 1 February 2017

With the healthcare industry in the Middle East set to grow to $71bn by 2020, the amount of data produced and gathered during this time will present a great opportunity to business leaders to develop the market even further. However, the region still faces challenges in not only how to efficiently capture the data, but how to correctly analyse and utilise the information for further improvement in patient care.

Building on the success of previous year’s event, the 5th Big Data Conference at Arab Health focused on where data analysis can most effectively be used for the benefit of the patient, with new topics ranging from population health, to electronic health records and clinical decision support.
