Canada Health Infoway’s Digital Health InfoCast brings leaders and innovators together to explore a wide range of topics. New episodes released the first Tuesday of every month.
The Hospital at Home - Part One
As more Canadians adopt digital health tools, how we think about care delivery is changing. In this two-part episode, Dr. Michelle Grinman and Dr. Shauna Tierney join us to discuss how hospital-level care can be provided in patients' own homes.
Introducing Insights, a New Research Website
According to Infoway research, today 65% of Canadians would use virtual visits instead of in-person visits for a prescription renewal.
That’s just one statistic from Infoway’s new research website, which covers a wide range of digital health topics. Bobby Gheorghiu and Barry Xu discuss why it's important to have digital health research available to inform policy decisions, help accelerate adoption of digital health and fuel innovation.

Exploring Standards and Interoperability
A key component of digital health is interoperability: the ability for different devices and systems to communicate seamlessly with each other, enabling the flow of data. Interoperability is achieved through different health standards. Join Ron Parker (Chair, HL7 Canada Affiliate, and Co-Chair, HL7 International Council) and Infoway standards experts Joel Francis and Joanie Harper, as they explore HL7, FHIR and other standards used in health care.
Episode 20: e-Mental Health: Research, Access and Connection
When it comes to mental health support, connection is critical. In this episode, we discuss research trends in e-mental health, and learn how virtual care can improve access and facilitate connections for families and individuals alike. Join the conversation with Infoway's Fraser Ratchford and Dr. Patricia Lingley-Pottie, President and co-founder of the Strongest Families Institute.
