The sustainability of health, health and social care depends on how we can make services in these areas accessible, high quality and more efficient for all. The digitisation of health data and the implementation of digital services will help achieve these goals, but this will require a change in the mindset of data users and a confirmation of the evidence base. This presentation addresses the teaching and implementation of more effective usage of digital health data through the innovative opportunities offered by shared data flows.
