Webinar Series: Digital Health Enabling Integrated Care Webinar Series

Broadcast Date: 05/12/2019

Presenters: Carolyn Steele Gray, Leo Lewis, Tara Sampali, Nick Guldemond, Jennifer Jones,

One issue we’re facing in health systems is our ability to effectively wrap services around patients to support person-centred integrated care. While this requires services to be appropriately designed, digital health solutions can play a pivotal role in supporting these models, in particular by enabling information sharing. Making purposeful connections between information systems can be critical and requires that we: 1) understand the needs we’re trying to serve; 2) how services are structured and delivered; and 3) what information needs to be shared to enable service delivery.

This webinar will overview:
• The current drive in Europe to adopt interoperable systems to meet needs of multi-morbid patient in integrated care systems
• What we mean by interoperability and the common struggles and strategies used internationally
• How NovaScotia is using a person-centred lens to guide their interoperability journey
