This Digital Health Oxford event will discuss the use of Open Data Standards and Open Source Software in the NHS and the wider healthcare sector.
Open licences for standards and software have the potential to reduce costs (by removing licence fees), increase transparency (by opening up source code) and enable greater community involvement in improving how healthcare is delivered. Open standards and software have facilitated the current internet age, from servers using Linux to smartphones using Android, and this DHOx event will open up the debate about how the open approach to technology could be applied to healthcare. Once again, we'll be hosting the event in the fantastic Oxford Martin School, followed by a drinks reception in the Kings Arms pub, where we've reserved The Wadham Room. We're looking forward to seeing you there. Richie & Chris
