Research Manitoba Events
eHIPP Winnipeg WorkshopDate: March 12, 2015Time: 8:30 amLocation: Victoria Inn - 1808 Wellington Ave
Research Manitoba and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) are co-hosting a one-day workshop on March 12, 2015.
Winnipeg will proudly host the Manitoba regional workshop, facilitating innovative discussions that will give Manitoba an opportunity to be included as part of the larger eHealth Innovations Partnerships Program (eHIPP) research initiative.
The program is intended to stimulate the design, testing, evaluation and spread of evidence-based eHealth solutions that are grounded in the needs of patient groups and populations.
The initiative will accomplish this by leveraging the technology innovation industry as partners. eHIPP will support inter-sectoral collaboration of researchers, health systems, end-users (health care innovation communities) and industry. Industry partners will team up with health care innovation communities to improve outcomes, patient experience and health care efficiencies in the two eHIPP priority areas:
• Early detection of and intervention for youth (11-25 years of age) with mental health conditions
• Seniors with complex care needs in their homes and communities
