Want to learn more about what is happening at Canada Health Infoway and, perhaps more importantly, ask questions to an Infoway executive? If you live in the Ottawa area, you have an opportunity to do so at the monthly OCRI IT in Healthcare seminar on May 25th. Our guest this month is Shelagh Maloney, Executive Director, External Liaison, Consumer Health and Innovation. Ms. Maloney will provide an update on the progress of the pan-Canadian electronic health record implementation. You can more details about this event here.
The OCRI IT in Healthcare seminar series facilitates the exposure and exchange of experiences and ideas. The seminars are targeted at health care providers, policymakers, IT entrepreneurs, technology developers, and students. The focus is on technologies that have actually been implemented; IT infrastructure development efforts and their costs/benefits; technology adoption experiences; and new public initiatives to support IT in health care. Speakers represent a cross-section from the life sciences community including vendors and developers of technology, researchers, and public officials.
