These seven industry leaders have committed to the vision of ACCESS 2022, a movement aimed at improving Canadians’ access to their personal health information and to digitally delivered health services. The founding sponsors are: Accenture Canada, LifeLabs, Orion Health, RGAX, Roche Canada, Teladoc Health and TELUS Health.
“We are very excited to launch the first ACCESS Alliance program with these prominent, well-respected founding sponsors who share our vision,” said Michael Green, President and CEO, Infoway. “We look forward to working with these innovative companies to champion a new day in health care.”
The Alliance is part of an ambitious national initiative that will help connect Canadians with their health information and to the digital health services that they have been asking for.
