Interconnection and Data Linkage – the art and science of combining data

13:00 - 18:00

Additional registration fee required: $25 
 
Data is the key to health surveillance – and many fields in fact. But what happens when you don’t have it all? When key pieces of the data puzzle are missing? When the data you need isn't all in one place?

This year’s pre-conference symposium by CARRFS focuses on Interconnection and Data Linkage. We delve into the state of the art in linking and combining data from various sources. What are the benefits of combining data for our work in public health and surveillance? When can we link datasets? How do we combine multiple, disparate sources of data? We live in a data rich world. It’s time for health surveillance and other health professionals to fully take advantage of this to maximize the potential of existing data to improve the health and well-being of Canadians. Building on successful initiatives combining and linking data, this symposium presents new strategies and discusses the challenges and opportunities to link and combine data from across Canada.

Presented by: Canadian Alliance for Regional Risk Factor Surveillance (CARRFS)
