June 8, 13,  22 & 29, 2017 | 12:00-3:00 PM ET 

Dominic Covvey Director, National Institutes of Health Informatics; Adjunct Professor, Faculty of Science University of Waterloo,

HI Bootcamp Booster Shot is an additional dose of Health Informatics & eHealth education to ensure attendees have the latest skills and knowledge to to meet the new demands of the emerging HI field.  

Like our physical universe, the universe of Health Informatics appears to be expanding and possibly doing so at an increasing rate. As we delve more deeply into the human domain with more and more sophisticated tools, we are experiencing heightened awareness of new competencies and/or capabilities that must be in the armamentarium of informatics professionals. Some of these new requirements for competence derive from a deepening understanding of the true nature of human health and health care. Others have their origin in new technologies that we must ourselves use or foster for use by health professionals. Still others come from a greater and more realistic appreciation of the nature of Health Informatics itself, both at the basic and applied levels. The result is that there is more to learn and teach, more skills that need to be acquired and new demands for our own attitudes and personal development.

Full Event Description:

More than 80% of Canadians say they would proactively take advantage of digital health solutions by viewing their own information (lab results, immunization records, prescriptions, and medical history).

Amid the profusion of upcoming solutions will there be a singular unifying resolution that will connect matters of health & research information, and personal data & privacy? Will this new frontier finally come to a positive plateau?

Where should we focus our efforts in the drive for better, and more unified efforts towards our well-being? …Workplace health assessment tools, self-management tools, patient adherence apps, or community platforms? And will these new tools actually be used by patients, caregivers, and their healthcare providers?

Can we achieve better overall health outcomes for individuals and for the system at large?

HI Bootcamp Booster Shot is an additional dose of Health Informatics & eHealth education to ensure attendees have the latest skills and knowledge to meet the new demands of the HI field.  

Like our physical universe, the universe of Health Informatics appears to be expanding and possibly doing so at an increasing rate. As we delve more deeply into the human domain with more and more sophisticated tools, we are experiencing heightened awareness of new competencies/capabilities that informatics professionals must have readily at hand. The result is that there is more to learn and teach, more skills that need to be acquired and new demands for our own attitudes and personal development.

Emergent factors that stimulate the need for competency/capability development include:

  • Analytics and Big Data
  • The Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • The Cloud
  • Precision/Personalized Medicine
  • Consumer Informatics
  • Devices, Sensors, Sensor Networks and data produced
  • Personal Attitudes and Implications in our workforce
  • Biomedical Engineering and Health Informatics
  • Complexity in health care and quantization of health information
  • And many others
