This video is a summary of the Big Data event held on 19 April 2016 at St Mary's Stadium, Southampton, by Wessex AHSN.
The Big Data conference, chaired by Richard Samuel, (Fareham and Gosport, South-Eastern Hants CCGs CEO) provided an overview of Big Data from experts within the field, as well as practical examples of how Big Data is being used to improve the way services are delivered.
Big Data in healthcare is being used to cure disease, improve quality of life, avoid preventable deaths and more importantly plan primary prevention strategies. With the UK population increasing and all of us living longer, through initiatives such as the Vanguards, models of care are rapidly changing, and many of the decisions behind those changes are being driven by data.

- telephone mentors and online peer support.
