Advancing the Use of Health Information in the COVID Era

Speakers: Dr. Jeff Bakal and Dr. Erik Youngson

Description: The Covid-19 pandemic has changed how we live, work and play. Similarly, the health services and health information has been responding quickly to the changing landscape. While the rapid response has changed the data that is collected, and presented some new privacy issues, it has also created opportunities and allowed the development of new, near real-time data sources. In this video, the speakers work through some case studies of how the electronic health information collected is being used to pursue clinical trials, surveys, and other health system research in Alberta.
