Advancing Innovation in Alberta’s Health Care System– An Update Event


Just Added: Webinar Option for Remote Attendees!


Click HERE to view the event agenda 


Alberta has long been recognised as a leader in health care system innovation within Canada.  With its single health authority - Alberta Health Services, their strategic clinical networks (SCNs), and the supporting efforts of the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Economic Development, Alberta Innovates – Health and now Health City Edmonton, this province is aligning its health priorities and efforts promising to be an even better place to do business in Canada for health technology companies.  However, with the many organizational and staff changes that have occurred in Alberta within the last year or two, navigating this promising yet somewhat complex system has become a little daunting for most companies.

This event brings key leaders from within the Alberta health system to provide real time updates on what matters most to them within their respective portfolios:

·        Updates that will highlight the priorities of AHS, the SCNs and what their new innovation adoption/assessment process is;

·        How the Ministry of Health’s health technology process and decision-making impacts AHS while informing policy;

·        What the new governance model of Alberta Innovates – Health is and their refreshed focus on supporting innovation within the health system; 

·        What Health City Edmonton is about within Alberta’s health care and policy landscape.
