Session 1: Progress on PrescribeIT™ - Bobbi Reinholdt
In August 2017, Canada Health Infoway launched its national e-prescribing service in Huntsville, Ontario.  Since then, multiple sites across Ontario and Alberta have joined the service, with plans underway in six other provinces to introduce the service that will send prescriptions electronically from a prescriber’s EMR directly to the patient’s pharmacy of choice.  Join Infoway as they describe how this new service deliver model is being rolled out and what valuable lessons were learned along the way.

Session 2: Empowering Canadians and Strengthening Health Care Teams: Driving Access to Care - Lynne Zucker
Without question, digital health solutions are a critical enabler of health system transformation.  Through its strategy, Driving Access to Care, Canada Health Infoway will play the role of catalyst, enabling the connections that provide Canadians and their health care providers with more timely and comprehensive access to personal health information and digital health services.  With a vision of healthier Canadians through innovative digital health solutions, Infoway’s strategy puts patients and their providers at the centre of a pan-Canadian health care ecosystem.  Join us as we share an overview of the priorities, coordinated approach, activities, as well as the public and private sector partnerships, necessary to achieve this future state.
