Webinar: World Accreditation Day 2023 Patients and their Safety at the Heart of Information Technology

On June 9, we join the global community in celebrating World Accreditation Day. This year’s theme of “Supporting the Future of Global Trade” highlights the crucial role that accreditation plays in supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Aligned with this theme, we invite you to a roundtable with expert health care leaders to discuss how accelerating digital transformation is shaping their world – and our world.

There has been an increased development in technology to manage and exchange health information between providers, patients, and other stakeholders. The various ethical regulations call on the practitioner to keep an up-to-date record of each patient in a safe place.

However, the use of technology in health care presents challenges, particularly concerning data privacy and security. Cyber-attacks have been rising for several years, and the threat is being felt internationally.

Health information technology can transform health care delivery and improve patient outcomes. Yet, health care organizations and providers should approach the implementation with care and attention to privacy and security concerns.

As an international organization focused on driving change to optimize care across the continuum, Accreditation Canada is pleased to bring thought leaders together to discuss what accelerating digital transformation means today and what can truly drive change for tomorrow.
