Research + Innovation Week
Join us on April 12 for “The Learning Health System: Ethical Implications of Data Sharing in Support of Research and Innovation” – a panel dialogue designed especially for University of Cincinnati’s Research + Innovation Week!

The panel of healthcare experts will discuss advancing the appropriate use of health data for discovery and improvement. Greater Cincinnati has a strong track record with respect to health data governance and exchange. And yet, we’re missing opportunities to drive improvement in patient outcomes, to accelerate innovation, and to support a robust research agenda among our academic colleagues.

The dialogue presents a unique opportunity to assemble healthcare leaders, academics, and improvement champions for an open dialogue on the ethical and appropriate use of health data.

Date: Thursday, April 12th, 2018
Time: 5:00-7:30pm
Place: The Transept on Washington Park, 1205 Elm St., Cincinnati, OH 45202
