Digital Health Week

Nov. 11-17

Digital Health Week (November 11-17, 2019) is an annual celebration and recognition of how digital health is transforming the delivery of care across Canada as more and more of our health care system becomes digital. We are proud to be working with a number of participating organizations to increase awareness of digital health. Launched in 2014, Digital Health Week is now a part of the ACCESS 2022 movement, which is bringing together Canadians, health care providers, government and industry to work towards a new day in health care. Together we can transform care.

Making a difference

Digital health can improve the quality of life for Canadians living with chronic conditions, and this is just what it did for Joy. A remote patient monitoring (telehomecare) program enabled her to get her diabetes under control, decrease her medication consumption, lower her blood pressure and start walking without a cane.

Working together, Canadians, health care practitioners and industry can transform health care.
