Reform is partnering with Imperial College London's The Forum to deliver a virtual policy hackathon on the topic of "Realising Smart Regulation in Healthcare", hosted via Zoom on Wednesday 22nd July 2020 at 13:30.

This will be building upon the award-winning research Reform produced in collaboration with NHSX. This research identified the main ‘points of tension’ in the regulatory process for data-driven healthcare innovations. Poor understanding of the regulatory requirements across the different stages of the innovation pathway; confusion about the roles and responsibilities of regulators and statutory bodies; and uncertainty over how to regulate some aspects of data-driven technologies, such as AI, are important factors stifling innovation.

This hackathon will bring together a strong group of experts including healthcare regulators, statutory bodies, NHS leaders, academics and senior policymakers, to explore practical solutions to these challenges. Dr Indra Joshi, Director of AI, NHSX, will deliver a 15-minute opening speech.

13.30 - Event start
