Tiffany Oei is a Senior Research Coordinator at Public Health Ontario (PHO) with a Master’s degree in Nutrition and Health (specialized in epidemiology and public health) from Wageningen University (The Netherlands). She has over 8 years of scientific research experience in health promotion, chronic disease, and injury prevention, with her most notable work in tobacco control. She also completed a substantial amount of work in quality and process improvement in PHO‘s product workflows and single-handedly led an overhaul of her department‘s digital information system. For COVID-19 response, Tiffany had a liaison role with Health Canada, Department of Defence, and Statistics Canada for contact tracing, and a communications role for release of knowledge products on PHO’s public facing website. Tiffany transformed the organization’s publishing process by significantly increasing efficiency from what used to be an average posting of 100 reports in a year to over 1000 during the first year of the pandemic. This was done by leveraging additional capabilities of SharePoint and Outlook that were normally not used, as well as creating guidance documents and training to quickly onboard new staff.
Tiffany aspires to become a leader in digital transformation that is not only focused on adopting new technology but also optimizing the technology that is already available to increase efficiency and decrease cost, time, and errors. Tiffany is a third year MBA student and President of the Healthcare Management Association (HMA) club at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. In her spare time, she loves playing soccer and tennis, trying new food, and talking about all things travel.
