Canada Health Infoway (CNW Group/Canada Health Infoway)

Week 2019 (Nov. 11-17) to celebrate how digital health is transforming health care in Canada. This is the sixth year for this nationally recognized awareness week, which is once again being held in conjunction with the Infoway Partnership Conference (Nov. 12-13 in Ottawa).

"Digital Health Week is a time to recognize and celebrate our collective achievements in digital health and to raise awareness about the value and benefits that Canadians and our health system are realizing as a result of digital innovations," said Michael Green, President and CEO of Infoway. "In addition to the economic benefits of more than $30 billion from digital health, Canadians are also experiencing better health outcomes as a result of more accurate information, more informed patient/provider communications, timely prescription renewals, and better self-management of health conditions."

Digital Health Week is now part of ACCESS 2022, a social movement to unite people behind a vision of creating a modern, 21st century health system that will give Canadians access to their personal health information and to digitally enabled health tools and services anytime, anywhere, from the device of their choice.

"We invite all interested Canadians ? including patients, caregivers, clinicians, industry, innovators and health organizations ? to join the movement to help build the health system we would all like to see," Green said.

Once again, dozens of organizations are participating in Digital Health Week activities. Here are some of the events planned during the week:
