  • will benefit from a more efficient and productive health care system and derive an economic benefit from a knowledge industry that exports solutions to the world To accomplish this the province should create incentives to drive adoption of health IT with key stakeholders in the health care system and develop a highly skilled workforce through education and training programs that cross pollinate expertise from health health informatics computer science engineering and business Among the speakers at the forum is Francois Cote TELUS executive vice president and president of TELUS Health Solutions TELUS contributed funding for the white paper and co sponsored the forum with Microsoft Corp In other areas of our lives technology has empowered us with convenience speed and access to information whether it is paying bills online changing a flight from your wireless device or downloading music and movies to your phone said Mr Cote Yet up until now Canadians have been inhibited from gaining similar access to information when it comes to their health care We should be able to consult treatment plans electronically schedule appointments online with our doctors securely access our health information and share it effectively with our network of care providers We hope this white paper proves to be a helpful tool in the work of realizing this important goal in the interest of all British Columbians As an example Mr Cote said that some individual hospitals have adopted the use of tablet computers and TELUS electronic health records which can hold information about drug treatments medical scans allergies and other critical information for a patient s entire life This allows doctors with a tablet computer to consult with patients and families right in their hospital rooms with full information reviewing scans and checking on past treatments and scans rather than having to track down and check paper records that might not even exist or re do expensive and time consuming tests that were done at another doctors office or in other hospitals During the event David Cerino general manager in Microsoft s Health Solutions Group also will speak to the value of information technology in health care and how software can enable stakeholders across the BC health system to deliver on the white paper s recommendations As outlined in this important white paper using technology to put personal health information in the hands of individuals can empower patients and their families to take control of their health and to work more effectively with their care providers said Cerino At Microsoft our vision is for a connected health ecosystem that enables data to be shared in meaningful ways within a hospital outside the hospital with patients and with applications that span the spectrum of care from labs to fitness facilities to pharmacies and more Only with this holistic view of personal health data will we be able to engage patients and improve on the delivery and management of health and wellness here in British Columbia and around the world About the Ivey Centre
