Leading innovation programs in healthcare feature defined processes and frameworks that ensure all stakeholders are working in alignment to deliver successful results.

This virtual LinkUp will discuss innovation governance and structured approaches to managing innovation in healthcare. It will feature examples, clinical/technical/business requirements, success stories, and lessons learned to implement innovative and successful programs in healthcare settings.

Discussion topics:

  2. What stakeholders (ex: healthcare delivery, research, vendors, entrepreneurs, incubator/accelerators, and more) are involved in your innovation program? How do you define roles and responsibilities for a broad set of stakeholders within your innovation program?
  3. What are the results you are pursing? How do you measure success?
  4. How do you identify and manage risk in your innovation program?
  5. How are your managers, executives, board members engaged in decision making (ex: project selection, partnerships, investment, scaling, etc) throughout the process? What communication strategies are employed to share information as part of your innovation program?

Care to Chat: Tech Talk – How can the care sector effectively incorporate new technologies?

Thursday, April 20, 2023

For a decade, our Care to Chat series has proven to be key in bringing together top opinion leaders, experts and key decision makers to create dialogue about important and emerging issues in the province’s seniors living and care sector.

Tech Talk – How can the care sector effectively incorporate new technologies?

With an aging population and a shrinking workforce, the health care sector in Canada is struggling to fill vacant positions with qualified individuals. Thankfully, an emerging number of technologies have the potential to fill the gap in the lack of health care workers needed.

Harnessing the power of these technologies may improve efficiency and the care provided to older adults. Strategically adopting technologies can reduce administrative responsibilities, giving clinicians and care givers more time with clients and extending their scope of care.

Proactively seeking out opportunities and pinpointing specific areas where both clients and healthcare workers can benefit from new technologies will greatly bolster the future of the sector.

Our panel of healthcare and technology experts will answer questions such as:

  • What are some of the emerging technologies that may be helpful in our sector?
  • How can these emerging technologies help improve care?

Webinar Wednesday – Virtual care is the future

Wednesday, April 26, 2023

Dr. Ivar Mendez is a Professor of Surgery and the Director of the Virtual Care and Remote Presence Robotics Program at the University of Saskatchewan.

As a Clinician/Scientist, Dr. Mendez’ research focus is on functional neurosurgery, brain repair, stem cells, and remote presence robotic technology. His laboratory research has been supported by peer-reviewed funding from several sources including the Canada National Centers of Excellence, Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and Canada Foundation for Innovation.

Dr. Mendez has focused on, and significantly advanced, the use of remote-presence robots for medical care in neurosurgery and primary health care. In 2002, Dr. Mendez and his team performed the first long distance telementoring neurosurgery in the world. In 2010, his team established the first remote presence robotic program in the Canadian North to provide access to primary and specialized medical care to underserviced First Nations communities. Since 2013, he has been working with First Nation communities in Saskatchewan using advanced robotic technology for healthcare delivery. In 2019, Dr. Mendez’s team deployed the first telerobotic ultrasonography system in North America to three northern Saskatchewan communities. This technology was crucial in providing prenatal sonography to indigenous communities during the COVID pandemic.

For his innovative work in the use of remote presence devices to deliver health care to underserviced populations, Dr. Mendez received the 2011 Health Canada Award for Contribution to the Improvement of the Health of Canadians. In 2022, he was appointed an Officer of Canada for his pioneering work in the use of remote telemedicine and robotics to revolutionize the delivery of health and patient care in Canada and worldwide
