Please only RSVP if you can commit to attend.

Health 2.0 London presents an event challenging the current excitement and enthusiasm for 'Big Data', 'Digital Health', 'Open Data' and the trend of health systems providing patients with online access to their own medical records.

What are the risks of patients and providers suffering from 'Information Obesity'?
Do the sickest and most vulnerable patients need (or even want) all this data?
Will the explosion in data from Digital Health trigger health panics?
What evidence exists that spending money on providing patients online access to their medical records is better than building new hospitals?
