Accelerating the Adoption of Digital Health Technologies in Canada

In late 2018, TECHNATION published a white paper highlighting barriers to the adoption of the emerging technologies that are required to accelerate the transformation of Canada’s current healthcare system.

The Paper, titled Accelerating the Adoption of Digital Health Technologies, uses a subset of the emerging technologies such as virtual care, precision medicine, consumer health, the Internet of (health) Things, cloud computing and blockchain, to illustrate the growing gap between the pace of adoption and scale in the Canadian health industry versus other industries and health systems.

The key recommendations of the Paper encourage both the Canadian public and private sectors to be significantly more engaged, collaborative and focused on the common objectives of sustainable investment, standardized procurement, and scalable innovation nationally, across our provincial boundaries, to create a truly Canadian digital health marketplace.
