On June 22, the Telfer Health Transformation Exchange (THTEX) held its second meeting, which was well attended by both Telfer professors and physicians leaders alike. The group is keen on expanding joint work on transforming healthcare in the region through research and education.
At the meeting, updates were provided on the progress to date and research collaborations coming to fruition. One such example is the collaboration between Pavel Andreev of the Telfer School and Dr. James Chan of The Ottawa Hospital, who completed a systematic review of mobile technology in healthcare and how it has impacted the way physicians work and interact with their patients, and vice versa.
The group brainstormed a number of opportunities for working together, with an eye on establishing new research partnerships between Telfer professors and clinicians. More events are in the works and various communication channels for the group and general public are being explored.
