CALLING ALL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, ESPECIALLY THOSE WORKING IN BC
Thanks to the participants of our inaugural eHITS 2014 conference in May this year, it was a great success in promoting mutual exchange of knowledge, ideas, and suggestions!

Building on our growing community of health professionals and enthusiasm, we will showcase the most practical and applicable eHealth technologies and innovations relevant to BC health care providers today. Regardless of whether or not you are an innovator, average user, novice or technophobe, this conference will appeal to you.

Practical, easy, and fun!  We will aspire to ensure that all participants take home eHealth tips/approaches to immediately apply in professional practice to enhance patient care. You will also find out how the province and health regions are working together on eHealth and how you can participate in BC, and how these initiatives will provide you with tools to improve practice, health education, and communicate better with patients.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the latest exciting developments (in our province) and ways health professionals, clinics, hospitals and health authorities are using information technologies to deliver innovative health services to patients in BC.
  • Share the latest apps and electronic tools to enhance your own professional practice and better support your patients to achieve health and wellness.
  • Identify the new generations of technologies relevant to BC healthcare which are transforming health practices.
  • Find out what the current generation of health professional trainees are learning and what technologies they are using in practice, and how you can keep up-to-date on the latest trends and approaches.
  • Participate in the dialogue to guide the current health system to best use information technologies in health care service delivery to improve our health system of care in BC.
