Optimizing Outcomes During COVID-19: The Urgent Need for Data Sharing

COVID-19 is placing unprecedented stress on the Canadian healthcare system. Healthcare providers and policy makers are struggling to ensure that they can make the right decisions to minimize mortality for Canadians in the face of demand will far exceed capacity. Realtime data is required urgently in all domains of the healthcare system in order to evaluate the impact of policies and care protocols. Unfortunately, much of the required data is collected and shared by provincial health systems and is either not available, delayed or not comprehensive.

During the webinar, we will share a plan for a ‘COVID-19 Tracker’ that includes the impact of policy and care delivery processes on key health outcome metrics across all healthcare domains, in a manner that will facilitate rapid comparative analysis, predictive modelling, and generation of rapidly updated evidence-informed guidance. Our webinar is intended for healthcare leaders. Our request is that all provinces urgently improve access to real-time healthcare data to help us fight COVID-19 and save the lives of Canadians.

Technology in Healthcare: How innovation drives positive outcomes in the workplace

Many Canadians currently face a crisis around timely access to care and this crisis cascades into the workplace, impacting absenteeism, presenteeism, and productivity. Based on Statistics Canada data, employees miss approximately 10 days of work per year due to illness or disability which translates into $16.6 billion of lost revenue in the Canadian economy. Lack of convenient and timely access also results in a build-up of untreated health conditions that could further drive up benefits plans.

Technology has a big role to play in bridging the gap of convenient and timely access by providing high quality healthcare. This recorded session highlights how digital health innovations can empower your team with the right information, technology, tools you need to support the health of your employees.

Facilitating a Safe and Respectful Workplace

Despite the compelling evidence, not all employers are fully engaged in preventing harassment (including bullying and sexual harassment) and workplace violence. Even among those that are engaged, there is no globally accepted and evidence-based preventive solution. One factor that can predict the degree of risk and prevalence of harassment and violence in a workplace is incivility. And while incivility plays a role in predicting harassment and violence, the benefits of creating strategies and programs focused on curbing incivility have been given less attention.
