The Westminster Health Forum is to hold an event on next steps for diagnostics and pathology – innovation, collaboration and standards. The organisers say:
“It follows the commitment in the NHS Long Term Plan to roll out pathology networks across England by 2021 and diagnostic imaging networks by 2023, and will provide a timely opportunity to discuss the use of technology, artificial intelligence and genomics to improve the diagnosis of disease.
“The seminar provides an opportunity to consider the progress of the Artificial Intelligence and Data Grand Challenge Mission, which aims to use data and AI to improve the diagnosis of chronic diseases by 2030, following the recent announcement of £250m investment in artificial intelligence and the development of a National Artificial Intelligence Lab.
“Delegates will consider what support can be provided to innovators through the regulatory and approval process, as well as any barriers to uptake, ensuring data protection and maintaining public trust.
“Further sessions will consider how to accelerate the diagnostic process, in light of the Accelerating Detection of Disease programme which announced £79m of government investment for research into the early diagnosis of diseases including cancer, dementia and heart disease, as well as goals to recruit up to 5m healthy participants in research.”
