eHealth Future Trends

October 3, 2014 to November 6, 2014
Live, online, interactive sessions using Webex, n/a, ON

October 23, 30 & November 6, 2014
12:00 - 1:30 PM ET  
Early-Bird Deadline: Sep. 26

Instructor: Michael Martineau - eHealth Industry Analyst

According to noted inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil, our world will experience even more profound technological change in the next ten years.
 
This series examines how this change will influence the digital Health landscape and identify eHealth future trends that will impact Canadian healthcare providers and citizens in the decade to come.

For many years, the quintessential image of a physician included a white lab coat (clinical analyst), a stethoscope (data collection) and a patient’s chart (data storage & retrieval).
This model will be used as a framework to explore eHealth future trends.

Session 1: Data Collection
This session will explore how currently available and emerging technologies will transform the manner in which data is collected, often disrupting current practices and, to a greater extent than ever before, involve the individual about whom the data is collected.

Session 2: Data Storage & Retrieval
This session will examine the technological forces driving these changes and offer possible evolutionary paths for participants to consider.

Session 3: Analytics
This session will explore how technological advances will support the re-use of information collected in digital form for a wide variety of purposes including insights that can influence diagnosis and treatment.
