Panel: Virtual Care Will Lead Radical Change in the Healthcare System
Healthcare reform will need to spur a totally different approach to how care is organized, delivered, and distributed, which will be paramount in a (hopefully soon) post-COVID-19 era. It’s the only way to deliver the quadruple aim of healthcare: better outcomes, improved patient and staff experience, and lower cost of care.

Concurrent Panel A: Digital Technology Supercluster – Leveraging Technology and Collaboration to Bolster Healthcare During COVID-19
Since the COVID program was launched at the end of March we have seen how public, academic, private and research organizations can rise to a challenge and create incredible results. How can we leverage public funds with private co-investment? How can collaborative innovation work and deliver fast, meaningful results? This panel will discuss how to expand what Innovate BC is doing and what the Supercluster has learned post-COVID.

Concurrent Panel A: COVID-19 and the Acceleration of AI in Healthcare
Healthcare systems around the world—even the most advanced ones—are some of the most complicated, hierarchical, and static institutions in society. Before COVID-19 struck, we did not understand the importance of these areas and act accordingly, and, crucially as far as AI is concerned, we did not have the data to deliver the solutions.
10:45am – 12:00pm • Virtual Platform
Concurrent Panel B: Testing and Vaccine Development
This panel will shed some insights and ‘learnings’ from the testing issue. This has opened up both opportunities for collaboration between public and private sector, innovation and regrettably, some rather large gaps in capacity, collaboration and speed to action.

Panel: COVID-19: The Effects of Tracing Apps, Data Management & Ethics
Do we need an organized process to support timely data collection on COVID-19 cases or their outcomes? The real challenges in health data is breaking down the silos to create access to hospital discharge summaries, emergency department visits and long-term care claims used by researchers and healthcare systems to better inform public policy decisions.

Panel: The Inflection Point in Healthcare - Where Do We Go from Here?
The Pandemic has provoked the healthcare system and, in some areas, exposed its vulnerabilities. We have responded with accelerated use of digital tools and digital modalities to prevent disease spread, treat those affected and preserve life. We now recognize some of the major weaknesses in the healthcare chain that were not fully exposed. We need to leverage all of our creativity and ingenuity to further promote development and uptake of innovative approach to healthcare and use of data. The panelists will pull together some of the key points from the summit and inspire you to innovate, collaborate, and generate solutions.
