About the e-Health Policy Symposium
14 February 2017
The Institute of Health Economics and the O’Brien Institute for Public Health, in collaboration with Alberta Health, are pleased to have co-hosted a public policy symposium – Towards “Person-Centred” Integrated Health – focused on moving Alberta towards a person-centric health system, and the need to improve continuity of care and electronic information sharing in the best interest of the patient.
This symposium addressed the importance of integrated health information as a necessary foundation for improved patient and system outcomes. The focus of the symposium was to discuss the benefits and challenges of shared health information and to better understand the role that health care providers play individually and collectively in achieving more person-centred and integrated care. Keynote speakers shared their experiences, opportunities and challenges around integrated health information.
