Case presentations

Through presentations we will take a look at what prospects there are today when working with user generated (the citizens) Big data/Open data, how it is used, while also looking ahead to what might come next in the near future. The healthcare sector especially holds great potential when it comes to Big data analysis and utilizing open data as the cases presented will demonstrate.

Infrastructure and methodology already available

Furthermore there is a highly advanced national infrastructure already available and open to use for public and private organisations developing solutions for today and aspiring to shape the future as well. It allows for a standardized and effective access to national health-IT services. By having data be available through the infrastructure, it will allow for a much smoother and more proactive healthcare as practitioners, clinicians and so forth can have access to citizen generated data, which will give them a more complete picture of the citizen’s/patient’s treatment and overall health.
