Workshop Facilitators:

Ian Darwin, M.Sc., has worked in the software development field for ages. He is also an author, an editor/contributor, and a developer

Workshop: Demystifying App Development in Mobile Health

Description: A broad overview of software development for mobile applications, aimed at Health Care planners and organizers who will be funding, specifying, and working with developers to build, mobile eHealth applications will be presented at the Expo.

Analytics & Performance Improvement Lead, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority Emergency Program, and Assistant Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, University of Manitoba

Workshop: Healthcare Analytics for Quality and Performance Improvement

Description: Healthcare quality improvement activities are dynamic; they focus on high priority issues that may evolve as changes are implemented and new issues arise. Data-driven decision-making, quality improvements, and innovation in healthcare become possible only when the technology and quality strategies are in alignment and analytics are applied. HCOs must bridge the gap between Information Technology (IT) development and quality improvement efforts that, unless addressed, seriously undermines an HCO’s ability to achieve real and sustained transformation.

ELLICSR, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Manager of Social Innovation and Health Care Social Media Canada, Founder

Workshop: Online Community Management

Description: Patients, caregivers, family, friends, and other supporters are increasingly taking part in online health communities to share information and find support. Patients know things — about themselves, about each other, about treatments — and they want to share what they know to help other people. But web 2.0 technology alone does not make community. To build and sustain a community, you need a connector and enabler. You need strategic community management that works.

BSc, MSc, MD-PhD candidate and eHealthCareers, Co-Founder and Director

Workshop: Big Data and Health Analytics

Description: It seems that everywhere we turn someone is talking about harnessing the power of analytics and ‘Big Data’ to help us make decisions about healthcare financing and delivery or to personalize care for individual patients. Consultants are marketing data platforms and analytics services that leverage electronic health records and administrative databases to find answers for healthcare decision makers. But how can you tell if the answers are true? The purpose of these sessions is to provide some background and principles for sensible interpretation of healthcare data.
