Improving patient care with

decentralised data architecture

Delivering highly-connected digital healthcare experiences that improve patient care while navigating growing data governance, ownership and sharing concerns, is a major challenge for the NHS and the healthcare industry.


Healthcare experts Scott Davies, Technology Director and Ashok Subramanian, UK Head of Technology at Thoughtworks, explore how decentralised data architecture can help solve many of the data ownership challenges associated with delivering patient-controlled care. 


Topics covered include:


  • The main challenges for healthcare organisations from limited data visibility to data interoperability
  • How modernising IT architecture can harness the full power of data to deliver a connected ecosystem
  • Best practices for implementing decentralised data platforms
  • How “data as a product" approach can democratise data access and ultimately support better patient outcomes
