This webinar, held in partnership with Digital Health Canada, will highlight some of the challenges and opportunities faced by The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) around the complexity of collecting, storing, and analyzing the vast of amount of data in their critical care units to try to gain insight using a series of approaches.
Representatives of SickKids will present their vision as well as some of the past work (clinical & research). This webinar will present the Enovacom Patient Connect project from a clinical and patient benefits perspective, and will present the challenges faced from three perspectives: clinical; research; and IT/clinical engineering.
Mr. Alain Larochelle Eng. MBA is Country Manager - Canada at Enovacom, an Orange company. An engineer by training, Mr. Larochelle’s focus remains in the health and information technology sectors with companies such as Bell, Emergis, Telus, IMS Health (IQVIA), and now Orange.

infants and children per year. He has co-authored and published a number of research papers and is constantly striving to improve the delivery of anesthetic care. To this end, Dr. Siddiqui and the team of researchers at SickKids are passionate about research and innovation. They have thriving research programs in basic science, clinical research, patient safety, medical simulation, and education.
Robert Greer is a computer scientist, software engineer and a systems architect in the Department of Critical Care Medicine, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto. Robert designed and implemented a system for remote monitoring of time-series physiologic signals for patients. He has an active presence in the day-to-day operations of the critical care unit, where he overseas and ensures accurate data capture, and is actively involved in building relationships and education of bedside staff on data science. More broadly across The Hospital for Sick Children, Robert works closely with members of the Clinical and Research Information Departments and with Biomedical Engineering; he leads product assessment and implementation in the Critical Care Unit related to data science, develops partnerships with external vendors, and facilitates data structure and access for research by investigators. He is a member of working groups building the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine program at SickKids.
Sébastien Delécolle, technical manager for Canada, is a biomedical engineer who specializes in clinical and medico-administrative interoperability solutions. He has participated in projects across the globe and currently leads the implementation of all the projects in North America. He has recently contributed to a project in Canada where nurses achieved a 97% adoption rate which can be translated in only 3% of data being captured manually by the healthcare professionals.
