To build a strong foundation for health infrastructure in Canada, public sector health officials must prioritize sustainability, resilience, and robust operations. Operating, redesigning, and upgrading, healthcare infrastructure is an ongoing journey that requires continuous improvement. To continuously improve the quality of care delivered, healthcare infrastructure and healthcare systems need to become more integrated to address care needs across the healthcare service continuum. Opportunities must also be identified to leverage technology and enhance delivery.
Join us at our Healthcare Infrastructure Conference on Tuesday, October 4, 2022, and hear from key leaders in Canadian health infrastructure. Learn about the future of health infrastructure through a smart health and digital health lens. Together we will embrace innovation, revolutionize the healthcare system, and advance health for all Canadians.
The Public Sector Innovation Series feature the latest initiatives throughout Canada and share insights via keynote presentations, case studies, panel discussions, and fireside chats. To provide additional perspective – concurrent tracks will address more specific topics and challenges in the worlds of technology, people, data & process faced by public sector leaders today.
