Data & Genomics: Realizing the Nordic “Data Goldmine”

Precision medicine or personalized health depends on good data and genomics. The Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies is preparing a conference on “Data & Genomics: Realising the Nordic “Data Goldmine”.
Health will be disrupted by the potential of molecular and digital data, especially when in combination with advances in the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing, robotics and nano technology.
The Nordic Countries ( Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Greenland, Åland) have collected a vast amount of social and health data that can be considered a research, development and commercial gold mine – and even be a of use in both individual health and population health. But we do not see this data used enough; is there a need for such data, what can it benefit and where are the bottlenecks?
What are the possibilities with Genomics & Data for health?
What do we need to develop and/or change to make genomics more applicable?
How do we “set the data free” so it can be used efficiently and effectively?
Can the Nordic Region become a driver for data-driven genomic health models?
The conference will be organized with the following four sessions
Genomics, ICT & Data in Present and Future Health
Danish/ Nordic Health and Social Data
Activating the Danish Data Goldmine for Health and Genomics – who are the enablers?
In many countries, health and social care are managed in different sectors. Data are often not shared between the two sectors and problems occur, when social factors impact a patient’s health – and the other way around. Citizens and patients, and the health professionals and social workers who meet them, are victims in this fragmented system. Citizens and patients must be at the centre to ensure continuity of care in its entirety, both from a social and a health perspective.
In this conference, we focus on the experiences and challenges – organisational, legal and digital – we meet when trying to promote data sharing between the two sectors, seen both from a Danish and an international perspective. We take a look at strategic and practical approaches and we hear from policy makers as well as from the everyday life in a municipality, for which this is a real life issue.
The conference is organised by MedCom in collaboration with Local Government Denmark (KL) and Danish Regions.
Infection Control and Innovation – New Solutions to Old problems?

Infection control and innovation – New solutions to old problems?
- Opposites attract? Combining basic infection control methods and highly advanced innovation in modern healthcare
Conference in Odense, October 6th 2016.
Infection control in hospitals is an area in continuous development. Innovative hospital constructions and technology developments are bringing in new possibilities for infection control but also pose new challenges in the field. At the conference we wish to examine aspects of this duality. Which of the new technologies actually delivers an answer to a known problem and which are superfluous demonstrations of design and technology that can do more harm than good when it comes to infection control? Are we addressing the real problems of infection control? And how do we ensure that proper infection control measures are taken when implementing new technology such as surgical robots?
The 1-day conference event in Odense seeks to examine these questions and give room for discussion and networking. The purpose is specifically to bring together people from different areas who all work in the field of infection control, from scientists and researchers to practitioners in hospitals and technicians and vendors from the industry. There is an identified need for technology experts to learn more about infection control standards and likewise for experts in this field to gain more insight into the pros and cons of the many new solutions they are constantly presented with. Innovation is both necessary and inevitable, but we have to find the right solutions to the right problems.
Large-scale telemedicine deployment in Denmark – A look at the results and the questions people are afraid to ask (In Danish)
Wednesday October 5th the Centre for Innovative Medical Technology will host a national conference around the topic of large-scale telemedicine deployment in Denmark.
In recent years a number of telemedicine services for patients with chronic conditions have been implemented at large scale in the Danish regions and comprehensive evaluations have been carried out. It is now time to join the researchers and practitioners involved in each of these projects to collect insights and experiences gained, and form a shared understanding of both positive results and the not-so-positive aspects that have come from these large implementation processes. Based on this discussion, the conference hopes to shed lights on both opportunities and challenges and give recommendations about future large-scale telemedicine initiatives in Denmark.
