Santis Webinar: Federal Health Commitments: What to Expect in 2023

Tuesday, December 6, 2022

The federal government has given an unprecedented amount of focus to health, with several commitments made to health human resources, pharmacare, dental care and health data.

As many commitments require close collaboration with the provinces and territories to develop and implement, what will this mean for the dynamics between federal, provincial and territorial governments?

Webinar Wednesday – Positive outcomes of investing in the patient experience

Wednesday, December 7, 2022

Empowering teams to monitor the patient experience in real-time shows great potential to improve patient outcomes. But there are many challenges to start collecting valuable feedback and helping drive internal change. Learn how innovative healthcare organizations connect with patients to increase response rates and patient adherence to care plans. The scientific literature has shown that working closely with patient feedback helps build a strong relationship between them and their healthcare providers. Such initiative can lead to a reduction in medical complications and patient readmissions.
