Digging into the future: how can we improve pan-Canadian Data and Information Governance (DIG) for health?
“Change has never happened this fast before, and it will never be this slow again.”
— Graeme Wood
Since its formation almost 25 years ago, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) has harnessed the power of data and information to become an integral part of Canada’s health care landscape. This landscape is changing as organizations leverage exponential data growth, new capabilities from advanced and predictive analytics, and the rise of digital technologies.
To help generate better health outcomes through improved use of data and information, CIHI has been listening to stakeholders to determine opportunities to
• Simplify sharing of trusted data;
• Enable privacy-sensitive access; and
• Create insights that enable better evidence for decision-makers — from practitioners and health system planners to patients and others.
Kick off your day by learning what CIHI has heard about possible directions, principles and practical actions to improve governance of data and information in Canada. The facilitated discussion will offer ample opportunity for you to provide your comments and advice on what action should be taken. We very much hope you will be able to join us.
