Mission

The Data Science section’s mission is to promote techniques and technology to improve outcomes by turning data into better care.

It incorporates the former TAHI Working Group.

Its goals are to:

  1. Provide education for clinicians interested in developing or appraising new technology.
  2. Promote research into clinical applications of data-driven healthcare, encouraging translation of novel computing and artificial intelligence techniques.
  3. Drive data-sharing across Europe in a legal, ethical and publicly-acceptable way.
  4. Promote standard setting (e.g. for Electronic Medical Records) and benchmarking, as well as ensuring technology is aligned to the needs of patients and clinicians.
  5. Create a collaborative framework, facilitating the collaboration of ICU professionals, data scientists, engineers, legal and ethical experts, as well as engaging industry partners for patient benefit.

Due to the exceptional situation we are facing because of the Covid-19 outbreak and the travel restrictions in place, all face-to-face Section meetings in March 2020 have been cancelled.

These might be replaced by teleconferences, organised by the Section Chairs/Deputies (more information will follow in the coming days).

The next face to face meeting will take place at LIVES 2020 in Madrid (10-14 October 2020).
