Building Trust Through the Intersection of Data & Technology in Healthcare

Building Trust through Technology-enabled Intermediaries (Virtual Webinar Series)
October 15, 22, 29 and November 5

As people across the globe continue to adjust to implications of the global pandemic, the continued uncertainty elevates the necessity for trusted relationships. Believability and confidence between individuals, directly and indirectly through their devices, exists in a variety of contexts.

Many contexts require a trusted intermediary. This third-party mediates interactions, sitting between stakeholders. In some cases, these stakeholders are users of services or activities provided through digital platforms. In many cases, users contribute the data that creates the benefits they receive.

In all scenarios, trust is essential, and often technological tools are a key component for enabling those relationships, serving as a hub and adding algorithmic filters to deliver affective and cognitive security in mutually beneficial systems.

Join us as we explore how intermediaries, through systems and ecosystems, can serve to build trust networks between people in education and wellness. This series will investigate tools, processes, and strategies that are helping to build trust across a variety of contexts.

Among questions to be explored in this series are:
*How can technology serve as an enabler of trusted relationships?
*What are the human requirements for technology-enabled, trusted relationships?
*What pitfalls, and potential solutions, can be anticipated when digital intermediaries bridge human relationships?

October 29th, Building Trust Through the Intersection of Data & Technology in Healthcare
Big data and advanced technologies play an increasingly significant role in our health and the healthcare we receive, paving the way for more efficient and equitable healthcare systems. Key components of such systems include stakeholder involvement, data integrity, and technology transparency. Understanding the linkage of these factors is essential to catalyze a trusted healthcare environment.

Join us as Dr. Tina Hernandez-Boussard examines how:
*Trusted intermediators should seek input from diverse stakeholders to ensure their questions are meaningful to the beneficiaries
*Data integrity and representativeness is essential to avoid potential downstream biases and/or harm
*Model transparency is necessary to ensure that AI technologies are deployed in an equitable and reproducible manner
