Frontline Innovation: Empowering Patients to Manage Their Own Health
This evening’s dynamic event was kicked off by our moderator John Oster who began by polling the audience with the following question: “What amount of effort does my company invest in empowering patients to manage their own health?” 50% of respondents answered <10% and 36% answered 10-30%. The key speaker, Dr. Joseph Cafazzo, was then introduced. He is the lead for the Centre for Global eHealth Innovation, a state-of-the-art research facility devoted to the evaluation and design of healthcare technology. He is also the Senior Director of UHN Healthcare Human Factors and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, and the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Medicine, at the University of Toronto. In 2010, he was the recipient of the Career Scientist award by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.
