Virtual Event: Health & Human Services:
National Insights – Winter Edition

Wednesday, February 9, 2022 | 12:00-2:15pm ET • 9:00-11:15am PT | Online

Event Overview

Advancing Digitally Enabled Integrated Care Systems

Join us to kick off the first quarter of 2022, a radical year of disruption for the Canadian Health and Social Care Sector in an unprecedented global post-pandemic age. The risk of not exponentially advancing becomes greater than the risk of “doing things the way they’ve always been done”. The rapid evolution of global health systems, integrated care design, and digital enablement is no longer in “the future”; it is in “the now”.

With higher pressure on resources, shifting population needs, growth in healthcare expenditures, and evolving consumer expectations for better patient experience and outcomes, the emphasis is on delivering more value with less.

We will discuss the future of telehealth, remote and shared care, as well as digital’s increasing part in enabling Canadian Healthcare Systems; focussing on lessons learned, applications of technology, and how data analytics is used to drive real value and patient outcomes. Evolution in leadership and change management capabilities are vital for embracing new developments, driving supportive cultures, collaboration, and workforce readiness for the coming years.

Join your peers as we explore ways to futureproof public healthcare at PSN’s new virtual event: Q1 National Insights – Winter Edition!
