Innovation [n] 1: the introduction of something new; 2: a new idea, method, or device
Each year, the Health Innovation Summit strives to spark conversation around new ideas and approaches to improving access to healthcare services and the patient care experience, in a broad range of areas, from mental health and addictions to acute services to community care.
The 2017 Health Innovation Summit challenged us to think outside of the box, to take a constructive look at what is working well in our healthcare system and where there is room and/or need for improvement. During the 2018 Summit, we will build on the ideas shared during the 2017 World Café and continue those conversations with the goal of turning ideas into action.
The Health Innovation Summit will once again bring together leaders in direct care registered nursing with other practitioners, patients, academics, students, administrators, individuals from the business and technology communities, and others from across the province to further develop health innovation ideas.
The 2018 Summit is thrilled to have emergency room physician, bestselling author and medical watchdog, Dr. Brian Goldman, join as our keynote speaker to talk about disruptive innovation, technology and patient engagement
Notably, the 2018 Summit will offer participants the opportunity to connect with fellow healthcare stakeholders, to learn from and inspire others, or to take the next step in bringing innovative and solution-driven ideas one step closer to reality utilizing the “Med.Hack” concept first introduced to the Summit audience at the 2017 event.
