Citizens’ Think-In on Digital Health Information

ADAPT, the SFI research centre for AI-Driven Content Technology is hosting an online public conversation Citizens’ Think-In to discuss Digital Health Information and we would like to hear your thoughts on the subject.

The Think-In takes place online on 4 March 2021 from 2.30 – 4.00pm

We now have numerous personal technical devices which can record everything from our heartbeat to our sleep patterns. As a result, the concept of health information is evolving. To explore this, ADAPT is inviting the public to join a conversation on: ‘What is my health information?’

During the event, you will be asked to consider questions like:

- Have you ever considered which information in your health record belongs to you?
- Should data collected on smart devices such as phone apps and wearable technologies, be considered health information?

Event outline:

  • Short introductory presentation relating to Health Information & Digital Health Records by Dr. Derick Mitchell, CEO of the Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science and Industry (IPPOSI)
  • Small-group discussion of scenarios, focusing on which information in your health record belongs to you, how the information is accessed and 
  • Each group reports back with thoughts 
  • Whole group reflection and deliberation

During the Think-In, you will be invited to join Zoom breakout groups. You don’t need to have any previous knowledge of the area – we will provide all the information you need and we are interested in hearing opinions from everyone.
