Health Care Professionals Invited to Share Innovations in Digital Health


Health care professionals who use digital tools to improve patient care are invited to participate in the ImagineNation e-Connect Impact Challenge, a competition that recognizes innovative solutions in digital health care.

“The vast majority of Canadians think it’s important that the health care system make use of digital health tools,” says Richard Alvarez, president and CEO of Canada Health Infoway. “The e-Connect Impact Challenge encourages clinicians to accelerate the use of digital health to connect with their patients and peers, and share how that is improving the quality of care and the patient experience.”

Teams that register for the e-Connect Impact Challenge are invited to submit information demonstrating a solution in at least 1 of 4 categories:  e-visits, e-requests for prescription e-renewals or e-refills, e-requests for service, and e-reports of service.

Over $1 million in awards are available for a variety of team achievements. Teams that qualify before January 1, 2014 are eligible to win 1 of 6 $3000 awards.

Personal stories about the significance of digital health in the lives of patients and health care providers are showcased in Infoway’s recently launched Better Health Together campaign. Videos of patient stories can be viewed at
