Ottawa Physician To Speak on Complexities of Connecting to the Primary Care Doctors in the Community

In addition to writing this blog (which I plan to resume a more active publication schedule in the near future) and two magazine columns, I also volunteer my time helping several organizations promote increased use of IT in healthcare.  One such activity is chairing the Program Committee for the Ottawa Centre for Research and Innovation (OCRI) monthly IT in Healthcare event series.  Each month we host a different speaker who addresses an interesting and topical aspect of healthcare IT.

This month we are thrilled to have a physician as our speaker.  Dr. Clare Liddy is a family physician and Clinician Investigator with the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Ottawa.  Dr. Liddy’s current projects include:

  • Improving the delivery of cardiovascular care in family practices (IDOCC project)
  • Implementation of regional self-management programs for patients with chronic diseases (CDSM project).
  • An e-consultation project.

For readers in the Ottawa area, please join us on February 9th to hear more about these projects.   You can find more details here.

    Hi Mike and Mark,
    I’m doing a radio piece on Dr. Liddy’s talk today. In particular, I’m interested in the results of the e-consultation project in the Champlain region and how it can be implemented in other regions (if it’s even worth it). I would really appreciate your opinion on the pilot project.
    If you could email me back with your contact info, I think your expert advice would really add to the piece.
    Thanks for your time,
    – Ebony
