      Purpose/Objectives: To demonstrate how Digital Health can improve patient outcomes, experiences and practice changes, increase real-time reporting, promote better risk management, allow for predictive and preventative care, and provide meaningful, timely data to front-line clinicians. The majority of Canadian hospitals Do not have all of the necessary information available at the point of care in an electronic format Have not implemented evidenced-based medicine and clinical analytics at an enterprise level Have process inefficiencies which compromise patient care delivery Digital Health Innovation can help address these issues through Empowerment and Engagement of Patients, Families, and Care Providers Coordination across the circle of care and collaborative innovation Integration of data and devices in a secure regulatory compliant manner

      Methodology/Approach: Transformation through Digitization and mobility Visioning and priority setting to automate and optimize business processes Align enabling technologies with automated processes Design Thinking to reimagine the patient & staff experience Imbed mobile into process optimization Imbed analytics into enterprise optimization <img alt="mobility image.jpg" annotation="" id="image://39" src="" title="mobility image.jpg" />

      Conclusion/Implications/Recommendations: IBM has created a portfolio of Digital Health services and solutions. We leverage global experiences and leading practices and bring them to the Canadian market. We can help you achieve the health system of the future: Patient Outcomes = Great! Patient Satisfaction = High Staff Satisfaction = High Virtual visits = 60% Physical visits = 40% Preventable Errors = Zero Avoidable Readmissions = Zero Hospital Acquired Infections = Zero Length of Stay = Below average Value based Care = 100%

      140 Character Summary: Our approach has: an emphasis on proactive care to meet pt needs, a patient-centric focus, mobility and innovation, care that is based upon value and outcome.
