Healthy Canada Conference 2018: Personalized Health and Wellness
March 27 @ 8:00 am - March 28 @ 5:00 pm
Applying precision across the health system, from prevention to health care to workplace wellness is the next frontier of Canadian health innovation
The concept of precision or personalized medicine is increasingly becoming a reality. Put simply, medical decisions, practices, policies, and programs, and/or products are tailored to the individual patient based on their predicted response or disease risk.
This precision approach to interventions across all pillars of health presents unique opportunities to enhance health and well-being for all Canadians while delivering value-for-money. This includes health promotion and public health, health care system design and interventions, and workplace health and wellness programming and policies.
Once-size-fits-all approaches no longer deliver results nor value
Canada has too long catered to the average. Big data analytics offers the opportunity to better understand individual- and community-level characteristics, preferences, and needs. Health care providers, health care delivery organizations, employers, governments, and the health technologies industry can all leverage this data. This will lead to better outcomes including improved devices and pharmaceuticals, and better products and programs.
Join us to discuss how Canada can become a leader in implementing a personalized approach to health and wellness
This event will bring together experts and stakeholders from across the country to address these issues and many others, with the goal of applying innovation to health and wellness. This will help all participants in the system achieve greater impact from a population health and productivity stand-point. Don`t miss this chance to explore the top issues, network with your peers, and have your say on how we can improve Canadians’ health through personalization.
