With Canada a decade in to our national e-health journey, Infoway’s Board decided that it was time to assess progress and decide where course adjustments might be indicated to optimize value for individual Canadians, clinicians, government, and administrators between now and 2018.
Over the last few months, our ear has been to the ground across the country, connecting with more than 500 people through interviews, focus groups, and stakeholder forums.
Last week, we checked in with thought leaders from across the country to see if we had correctly interpreted what we had heard and to seek their help in delivering on our shared goals for improving health care for all Canadians:
- We heard from international leaders about their experiences with innovation in health care.
- Participants explored what success looks like for individuals, clinicians, and the health system as a whole, as well as how health IT can help us get there.
- Delegates shared their insights and lessons learned about what could and should be done to transform the health system.
Why not join the conversation?
For context, click on the video (at left) and watch the closing plenary ”Seizing Opportunities“ panel from last week’s symposium. Participants included Don Drummond (Queens University), André Picard (Globe and Mail), and The Honourable Brad Wall (Premier of Saskatchewan). The panel was moderated by Brian Postl (University of Manitoba).
We look forward to your thoughts.
