HealthAchieve partners with COACH to boost eHealth

TORONTO – HealthAchieve 2010 and COACH announced they are partnering to provide an expanded eHealth forum for all healthcare providers, executives and staff. The enhanced conference program and exhibition are designed to strengthen the abilities of healthcare providers to deliver transformation through eHealth solutions.

HealthAchieve Vice President Warren DiClemente articulated what COACH brings to HealthAchieve2010:

“COACH is dedicated to advancing the health informatics (HI) profession and promoting a clear understanding of HI within the Canadian health system,” said HealthAchieve Vice President Warren DiClemente. “This partnership with HealthAchieve 2010 helps all of our attendees to appreciate the value of health information technology to their organizations.

“We expect COACH’s educative and facilitation role will result in a more enriching eHealth Track experience for delegates and access to a broader set of delegates by our exhibitors, sponsors and advertisers.”

“COACH is excited about this partnership,” said Lydia Lee, COACH President-Elect and Vice President and CIO, University Health Network & Integrated CIO, Shared Information Management Services (SIMS).

“An eHealth track at HealthAchieve 2010 is an ideal forum for COACH to build on our commitment to advancing the HI profession with established healthcare leaders in Ontario,” said COACH CEO Don Newsham.”This is a great complement to our national eHealth conference in the Spring, with its focus on current, compelling issues and key learnings.”

“It also facilitates the continuation and growth of the COACH Fall Forum in Ontario at one of the largest, most prestigious healthcare events in North America,” said Newsham.

The eHealth Track features presentations, education sessions and keynotes with highly prominent thought leaders.

The 2009 program included former U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich, TVO’s Steve Paikin and André Picard, National Public Health Reporter at the Globe and Mail.

A prominent slate of thinkers, experts and learning sessions is now in development for the 2010 edition of HealthAchieve, to be held November 8, 9 and 10 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
