Healthy Canada Conference 2018: Personalized Health and Wellness

2018 Event

This 2-day event brought together health experts and stakeholders from across the country to address the idea of personalized healthcare, with the goal of applying innovation to Canada’s health and wellness national strategy. We explored the top issues, gave delegates a chance to network with peers, and gave attendees a platform to discuss how we can improve Canadians’ health through personalization.

Topics of discussion included:

  • the promise of precision medicine
  • communicating the value to patients and communities
  • tailoring interventions for individuals, families, and communities
  • building systems that optimize outcomes while protecting privacy
  • personalizing health in the digital age
  • assistive robotics and devices in health care, the home, and at work
  • from genomics to proteomics—understanding health and wellness at the molecular level
  • the Uber of health care—personalization as the new disruptive innovation
  • opportunities to support innovators in health and health care—cutting through the red tape
  • policy challenges and opportunities to better leverage innovation in health and health care
  • big data analytics—harnessing data sets of biomedical information to prevent and treat diseases
  • the health and economic impact of precision medicine and the sustainability challenge
  • how personalization will transform employee-driven health benefit plans and wellness programs
