Big Data - what effect is it going to have on EBM by BMJ talk medicine published on 2017-01-19T17:30:03Z http://evidencelive.org/manifesto/ The BMJ, and the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine in Oxford have long collaborated to document the problems with the creation and use of Evidence based medicine - and together we host evidence gatherers, synthesisers and users in the conference Evidence Live. We know what the problems are - but what would positive change, when it comes to the creation and use of medical evidence look like? To find out we’re doing a series of discussions at various places around the world - where we’re talking to people who have a particular insight into one area of the evidence ecosystem. Ultimately we’re collating this into what we’re calling the evidence manifesto. In this discussion we went to the The Farr Institute which is a of 21 academic institutions and health partners in the UK - whose mission is to deliver high-quality, cutting-edge research using ‘big data”.
