With ever-increasing pressure to deliver high-quality care to growing patient populations, healthcare organizations (both public and private) are tasked with finding innovative ways to improve the accessibility, efficiency, and cost of healthcare delivery while balancing the evolving lifestyle preferences and needs of both ageing and digital generations.

The purpose of this program is to introduce participants to the role of connected health applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Telehealth, remote care, and disease and lifestyle management in facilitating more efficient and effective care and supporting the shift from hospital to community-based care. Program sessions will focus on exploring the variety of connected health technologies and solutions currently in use or emerging in the healthcare industry and will provide tools and best practices for their successful adoption, integration, deployment, and monitoring in clinical practice. Special attention will be paid to the unique operational and privacy and security implications of these technologies, and strategies for risk mitigation and avoidance of legal and ethical issues will be discussed.

This program is for both clinical, operational, and technical senior staff and executives who are considering or planning to integrate connected health solutions into their healthcare organizations.

Upon completion, you will be awarded a McMaster University - NIHI Certificate of Attendance in Connected Health and the Internet of Things (CH-IoT). A certificate of attendance is a non-academic certificate acknowledging that the recipient has completed a minimum of 10 hours of education/training in the subject area.
