Data governance standards for working with free-text data
January 16, 2019
Free-text data held in healthcare records represent a vast, untapped source of rich information to guide research and clinical care. Generally, clinical data need to be de-identified before they can be used for secondary purposes such as audit and research, but there are major challenges in finding effective methods that do not damage free-text data utility as a by-product.
TexGov is a Healtex-funded project to work towards the creation of data governance standards to enable free-text data to be used safely for research for public benefit. We are running a dynamic and interactive workshop with a combination of presentations, a panel discussion and group activities to take forward the work in this exciting area. The workshop will be in London on January 16th, 2019. Come and share your expertise, learn from others and be part of informing the developments.
Healtex will help with travel expenses for those who would need it.

Venue: Room LG01, 222 Euston Road, London.
