CIHI: Moving towards e-Health 2023
It’s been years in the making — CIHI will be co-hosting the annual e-Health Conference and Tradeshow with Digital Health Canada and Canada Health Infoway in person for the first time since 2019. The past 4 years have shown us all the power of connection. The pandemic put a spotlight on the importance of digital health tools and partnerships, and it also showed us the value of connecting face to face. We’re looking forward to experiencing the best of both worlds with you at this year’s conference.
The challenges that the pandemic presented to all of us have also inspired new opportunities in the digital health community. Budget 2023 signalled that our government partners are committed to working alongside us to modernize Canada’s health systems, including digital infrastructure.
As part of our digital transformation efforts, CIHI is in the transitional stages of modernizing the presentation and organization of our data. With greater interactivity and improved search navigation features on our website, users will be able to gain greater insight in a simpler-to-use format for enriched data reporting. These types of modernization and innovation efforts will be critical as we continue to work together to advance digital health initiatives across the country.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all in Toronto to continue important conversations, learn more about your successes and challenges, and keep collaborating on ways in which digital health can be leveraged to improve the health of all Canadians.
President and CEO, CIHI
