On 29th October, the Faculty of Clinical Informatics helped to run the UK’s first workshop on mobilising computable biomedical knowledge (MCBK), which was organised alongside the BCS, NICE, HL7 UK, HDRUK and The Learning Healthcare Project.
Faculty Founding Fellow Jeremy Wyatt hosted the workshop alongside Philip Scott from the University of Portsmouth, and Faculty Council members Nick Booth and Jonathan Kay chaired the morning and afternoon sessions respectively.
The event was held at the Friends House, London, and was a great day with a packed agenda and lots of lively discussion. Speakers included Hadley Beeman, Chief Technology Officer at NHSX, and Chuck Friedman from the University of Michigan, who gave an update on the important MCBK work that has been going on in the US.
Speakers were filmed on the day and the videos of these talks are now published and available to watch. Many thanks to Adil Oliver from Vopulus/The Medics Academy for his work on this.
