KKU Datathon: HealthTech for Aging

        At present, 8% of the world population is over 65 years of age, and this percentage is expected to increase to 20% in 20 years, with many of these people being older than 80. Investigate in and explore the opportunity for the HealthTech Solution to a Longer, Healthier Life for Aging is the crucial and challenging issues in Thailand and the World.  With the right solutions can deliver on one biggest goal: providing the best care possible and creating a safe environment for patients.

        KKU datathon  is organised by the Ministry of Science and Technology,  Khon Kaen University ,  and MIT Critical Data. We aim to bring together clinicians, data scientists and innovators in healthcare to address current problems in healthcare with data analytics technologies. The increasing wealth of patient data available through electronic health records has created a surge in research funding and industry interest in health data analytics. Challenges in extracting knowledge from health record databases, however, are significant.The event will strengthen cross-disciplinary collaboration around secondary analysis of electronic health record data, helping to pave the way for reliable knowledge to be translated into action, for the benefit of patients. It will be an event for students, engineers and scientists from Thailand and the region.
