Dalibor Frtunik

CTO

Sorsix International

Dalibor will present results from analysis of data from the public health systems of Macedonia and Serbia.

These data are centrally integrated across the entirety of the health sector in these countries and enables an analysis of the totality of care.

Of particular interest from a public health perspective are a comparative analysis of acute prescription effectiveness and relative cost, and a comparative analysis highlighting the similarities and differences between Macedonia's health system and that of Ireland.

Analyses show that unused capacity is ripe for utilization with some efficiencies across the health sector and how this might be applicable to Ireland.

Christopher Buckingham

Aston University

Christopher Buckingham is a Reader in Computer Science at Aston University with qualifications in Psychology (Bsc) and Computer Science (MSc and PhD). He specialises in building computational models of decision making that link mathematical analysis of large data sets with the psychological processes that humans naturally use to understand their world. Computer Decision Support Systems (CDSSs) can then be constructed that provide coherent advice by optimal integration of human and machine intelligence.

The main application area is mental health and wellbeing and Buckingham has developed a web-based decision support system, GRiST (www.egrist.org), for detecting and managing risks of suicide, self harm, harm to others, self neglect, and vulnerability. GRiST is being used by NHS Trusts and other mental-health organisations and has now generated a database of more than one million assessments across the separate risks, provided by 3,000 practitioners for over 50,000 patients.

The most recent research is funded by the European Commission EIT Health KIC for a project called ``GRaCE-AGE: Self-management of mental health and wellbeing in the community for older adults''. It builds on GRiST to combine clinical expertise with data from sensors. The focus is on self assessments and collaborative decision making where carers and patients work together in a consensual team. It requires assessments and decisions to incorporate the different emotional responses, values, and perspectives of the collaborating parties so that resulting actions are based on a holistic understanding of the individuals and their dynamic interactions.

Buckingham was a member of two separate committees advising the UK Department of Health on mental health risk and safety informatics. This gives him an insight into high-level strategic issues relating to health informatics. Wider perspectives have come from his work with organisations within Europe, America, and Australia, often at the level of implementing clinical decision support systems.
