PS03.02 - Accelerating the Scale and Spread of Connected Digital Health Solutions (ID 221)
Purpose/Objectives: The objective of this session is to present and discuss Canada Health Infoways digital health innovation ecosystem concept and roadmap. Our initial offering on the ecosystem roadmap is a privacy protective health information access platform. It is designed to accelerate the deployment, scaling and use of connected consumer and clinician digital health solutions by providing standardized, Canada-wide access to health information, privacy, security and consent services. The offering would be targeted at *deploying and scaling* innovative digital health solutions.
Methodology/Approach: We studied the market trends, critical success factors and taxonomy of business ecosystems across various industries. We then looked at Canadas clinical priorities and drivers along with the pain points faced when deploying and scaling digital health solutions. We then applied those observations to the definition of a Canadian digital health innovation ecosystem. The conclusions will be presented and then discussed among the panelists that represent consumer, clinician, solution developer and jurisdiction stakeholder perspectives. Panelists will provide their informed insights and frank assessment of the applicability and value proposition for the use of a health information access platform to solve some of their most pressing pain points.
Finding/Results: There is a value proposition for a platform which removes the most significant barriers faced by developers, jurisdictions and end users such as access to personal health information in a trusted and privacy protective manner. It will enable the scale and spread of innovative solutions such as e-referral, chronic disease management, predictive analytics, personalized medicine and clinical decision support. It will connect Canadians to their data so they can utilize solutions chosen by them or their clinicians. It is also a means of connecting clinicians to a persons data across the continuum of care with a *consistent and comprehensive health record. The data platform will help solve some of the systemic interoperability problems currently being faced by jurisdictions and solution developers while providing for a more connected health system* for both clinicians and consumers. The platform will be an enabler for locally driven priority areas including chronic disease management, home care, mental health services and palliative care. It can support the deployment of digital health innovations that will empower Canadians to take much greater control for their own health and well-being resulting in better patient outcomes and less pressure on the health care system.
Conclusion/Implications/Recommendations: The platform will : Harness the innovation creativity of the private sector to address Canadas healthcare priorities Improve speed to market and scaling with lower cost and risk to developers and jurisdictions Access to a consistent and comprehensive health record for Canadians in a privacy protective manner Get more value from the existing digital health investments
140 Character Summary: Digital health innovations will empower Canadians to take greater control for their own health & well-being resulting in better outcomes and lower health expenditures.
