Industry Showcase - Can a SaaS Healthcare Ecosystem Speed Innovation and Lower Costs?

  • January 18, 2022
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Zoom webinar


Registration is closed

Software as a Service (SaaS) models have transformed industries from retail to banking—is healthcare next? While Canadian healthcare is still relatively early in the digital adoption curve, rising pressures to improve operational efficiencies, scale clinical resources and deliver patient-centred care are forcing the shift towards “digital-first” models.

Moving to the healthcare cloud with an API-centric model for interoperability holds the promise of breaking the data silos and closed systems that limit innovation. According to Gartner Research, “by 2026, 75% of healthcare providers will reduce their reliance on EHR-native applications to deliver better experiences and outcomes, and improve efficiencies.” (Gartner, Innovation Insight for Digital Health Platform, 1 July 2021)

Join us on Tuesday, January 18 to learn how a SaaS healthcare ecosystem built on a secure interoperability platform can deliver cost and agility advantages while ensuring safe, resilient systems.

Register for this webinar to: 

  • Learn about the key components of an open healthcare interoperability platform
  • Find out how the Calian-L-SPARK MedTech Accelerator is fostering rapid innovation
  • Review SaaS use cases for remote monitoring, patient education and care planning
