Industry Showcase: Enabling Clinic to Hospital Interoperability in Canada

  • June 20, 2023
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Zoom webinar


Registration is closed

Canada's healthcare system is under significant stress, but access to timely information can make a world of difference. Several healthcare organizations are starting to exchange data between primary care, specialists and hospitals. These data exchanges are enabling new workflows, faster decision making and greater patient satisfaction.

During this session we will share our experiences with data extraction, transmission, storage and analysis. Our experiences with applying machine learning and artificial intelligence to primary care electronic medical record data will illustrate the art of the possible.

In this 45-min webinar, we will present how you can securely pull data from your hospital information systems or from your EMR to make better informed decisions about your patient. See what's possible in 2023!

Presented by:
