Our world is changing rapidly. The rising cost of healthcare, an aging population and evolving consumer expectations are driving the demand for new models of care in Alberta and beyond. Harnessing the power of digital health technologies can accelerate improvements across the system and establish the foundation for more affordable, accessible and high-quality healthcare.

The half-day live stream event will feature world-class leaders discussing key digital health themes:
• Forging New Frontiers in Digital Health
• Healthier Communities Through Digital Innovation
• The Opportunities – and Responsibilities – of Digital Health
• Health in Human Hands: The Personalization of Care

The Digital Health Summit is a must-attend event for healthcare professionals, innovators, industry leaders and policymakers.
