Rethinking Health Data Governance, Keith Porcaro, co-founder of Digital Public

  • 12:05PM to 1:30PM
  • SLB Room 122

Data is potential. Datasets are routinely reused and repurposed, combined with other datasets, or fed into machine learning models to yield new inferences or discoveries. Precisely what a given dataset will yield is uncertain: the value—or harm—that a single dataset could produce is difficult, if not impossible, to fully forecast in advance. In health, the routine of reusing and repurposing health-related data is foundational to advancing medical knowledge.
