Statistical methods for real-time monitoring of health outcomes
Prof Peter Diggle (University of Lancaster)

Abstract: The terms “e-health” and “health informatics” are increasingly used to describe a body of methodology intended to extract useful information from health-related data that is routinely acquired, often in real-time, during the operation of a health care system, rather than through specific, planned research projects. These data are often temporally and/or spatially referenced and can be linked to other electronically accessible data-sets such as census records, environmental features or social media activity. In this talk, I will argue that current research on statistical modelling of spatially and/or temporally referenced data can make an important contribution to real-time analysis of e-health data, with a view to identifying underlying trends and, often more interestingly, unexpected departures from those trends. I will then describe several applications of these ideas that are in various stages of development.
