Health Ecosystem: Digital Connectivity and Collaboration in Primary Care

Given the plethora of healthcare technology: electronic medical records, consumer health, home health monitoring and pharmacy management solutions – our primary care system should be a highly connected, coordinated system. However, it is still very much fragmented from the patient and provider experience. Therefore, solutions and offerings are needed  that enable innovation in the healthcare landscape to drive better care for patients though an integrated primary care landscape.Sanjay Cherian

Guided by a vision to enable better health impacts and underpinned by a cohesive strategy, Telus Health explores the power of technology to foster:

·       Connectivity: Reaching across the health ecosystem and connecting providers, patients and remunerators – with the tools and purpose to drive innovation and improved health outcomes

·       Collaboration: Creating the platform that enables healthcare providers to work and learn together breaking-down silos and coordinating  better care for patient

Join Sanjay Cherian, Vice President Product & Strategy, TELUS Health and The Telfer Health Transformation Exchange in this informative discussion on the journey towards a collaborative health ecosystem to strengthen primary care access for all Canadians.
