Glenn Lanteigne and his team at the South West LHIN continue to find new and innovative ways to engage the vendor community. Last fall they instituted the highly successful Vendor Friday series that offers individual vendors the opportunity to meet with LHIN staff plus invited members of the health community. Recognizing the opportunity that a quickly evolving and rapidly growing range of Consumer eHealth technologies presents, Glenn and his team recently announced the first Consumer eHealth Innovation session.
According to a recent chat with Glenn, the Consumer eHealth Innovations sessions will be held periodically throughout year so that vendors can meet with health service providers, physicians and others interested in emerging Consumer eHealth solutions to explore how these technologies can support the LHIN’s eHealth Strategic Plan. The first session will take place on Thursday, June 30th, at the University of Western Ontario’s Research Park Convergence Centre. The invitation on the South West LHIN web site states that attendees will “not only learn about the latest developments in personal health records, patient monitoring, consumer navigation of the health care system, and mobile technologies”, they will also “see how these and other tools support the LHIN’s eHealth Strategic Plan.”
Given the significant interest in Consumer eHealth, I expect that the limited number of spaces for this event will go quickly. RSVP by June 23, either by calling 519-640-2592 or emailing Jordan.lange@LHINS.ON.CA.
