Overview

0800-0930 available via WebEx.

This quarterly provincial  electronic round brings together health care providers, Information Management /Information Technology (IM/IT) colleagues, health administrators, health policy makers,  and academics to jointly explore transformative, technology-enabled healthcare delivery case examples to support patient-centred care.  These rounds aspire to stimulate thoughtful discussion around the clinical cases presented so as to optimize mutual learning, better understand enablers and barriers to adoption, enhance relationships and ultimately normalize the daily use of safe and effective technology in healthcare throughout BC.

The format includes case-based presentations with many opportunities for questions and discussion.

Please note that an email will be sent to you a week before the talk that will include instructions on how to view the rounds through VC Anywhere (WebEx). If you would like to add a videoconferencing room to this event please contact Stephanie Ameyaw (see contact info below).
