Driving Transformative changes in healthcare delivery to achieve excellence in patient care

The impact of COVID-19, along with the advent of new technologies, is transforming the way health care is being delivered in Canada. In response to these external pressures, the healthcare industry is undergoing rapid change, as hospitals, health systems and patients are increasingly relying on digital health technologies for medical service delivery.

Heightened patient demands have forced health care professionals to adopt to new ways of working, accelerating the push to modernize and transform the way the health care system operates. This rapid growth and the adoption of new delivery models, such as digital health, has created new operational challenges, and required a rethinking and new approach to service delivery. The end goal being a system that is more predictive, preventative, personalized and participatory going forward.

Public Sector Network’s Health Innovation virtual event will bring together top health professionals who are piloting the way with new and progressive digital healthcare initiatives. With digital innovation now empowering patients to play a more active role in their own care, the need to modernize the health care during this time of transformation is critical for a more responsive and positive citizen experience.
