Now there is just under a month to go to the Pathology Horizons 2015 conference and my first visit to Australia! The programme has come together really well an we have some excellent speakers and insightful presentations.
One such presenter is Dr Damian Fogarty of the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust. His talk is entitled “Pathology in the era of connected health: linking patients outcomes and data”.
With a passionate interest in the use of routine data for health care improvement and research, Damian has published over 100 papers and 2 book chapters in these areas. He fervently believes that Northern Ireland can make better use of IT systems to help drive high quality care for patients in an efficient and equitable way and also innovate marketable systems for other public sector benefits.
Damian is s a Consultant Kidney Physician in the Regional Nephrology and Transplant Unit, Belfast Health and Social Care Trust. He was formerly a Senior Lecturer and principal investigator with Queen’s University Belfast and from 2010-14 was Chairman of the UK Renal Registry. He trained in Belfast and Boston.
His clinical and research interests have focused on diabetic kidney disease, chronic kidney disease epidemiology including meta-analyses and health services research.
Join us at Pathology Horizons to hear Damian’s view on innovative usage of data analytics to drive high quality health care for patients.
