In Conversation Series

We are delighted to bring you a series of four ‘In Conversation’ interviews from the Population Health Research Network (PHRN).

These open and candid conversations feature the PHRN’s Chief Executive, Dr Merran Smith, and Professor David Ford, Professor of Health Informatics and leads the Population Data Science group at Swansea University Medical School, Wales, UK.

In the first video, the conversation covers the topic of cross-jurisdictional data linkage: Australia and the United Kingdom. In the second video, the conversation covers data security and the importance of data repositories. In the third video, the conversation covers the topic of looking to the future. In the final video, the discussion centers on consumers and their data.
