Topics key insight only about each

Topics- Key Insight Only About Each -

  • Context and Cost

  • What do we focus on?

  • Where do we start?

  • What is Strategy?

  • The e-Health Strategy Development Framework


Context and cost can we afford e health

Context and Cost?- Can We Afford e-Health? -

  • WHO’s Report of the Commission on Macroeconomics and Health [2001] - minimum $34 per capita to provide just a ‘basic health care package’.

  • 2011 Example

    • US $8,650 per capita; Canada $5,800 per capita

    • Canada – Of $5,800 , ~ 72% ($4,176) from public purse.

    • About 2.7% spent on ‘technology use in health’ or ~$113 per capita

    • If spend only $10-35 per capita, 2.7% = 27-67 cents per capita


Context and cost can we afford e health1

Context and Cost?- Can We Afford e-Health? -

  • e-Health is an ‘opportunity cost’

  • Money spent on e-health is money NOT spent on immunization, sanitation, clean water, rural clinics, health provider salaries, …..

    Any decision to invest in e-Health MUST be sound, evidence-based, transparent, and defensible!!


What do we focus on health informatics the electronic health record

What Do We Focus On?- Health Informatics - The Electronic Health Record -

Core components of an EHR include:

  • Client registry

  • Provider registry

  • Diagnostic imaging system

  • Drug information system

  • Laboratory information system

  • Interoperable. Yet private and confidential

  • An EHR initiative is a complex, high-risk endeavour


What do we focus on health informatics the electronic health record1

What Do We Focus On?- Health Informatics - The Electronic Health Record -

Generic problems:

  • Expectations of “instant results”

  • Lack of needed support

  • Lack of knowledge and understanding by policy and decision makers.

Is An EHR The Right Solution for Developing Countries?

  • British Columbia - $222 million capital costs by March 31, 2013; ongoing annual operating costs – maybe $30M


What do we focus on other components of e health

What Do We Focus On?- Other Components of e-Health? -

Where do we start frequently we learn from others good and bad idea

Where Do We Start?- Frequently – We ‘Learn’ from Others - Good and Bad Idea -

  • Emulate vs Adapt vs Context Specific

  • Learn from ‘Bad’ experiences

  • Care with ‘Good’ experiences


Where do we start old news and more recent news

Where Do We Start?- Old News – and More Recent News …. -

“The most favourable approach to the implementation of e-health is to have a framework of strategic plans and policies which lay the foundation for development”

WHO, 2006

“Ontario has spent more than $1-billion, most of it apparently now lost, in part because the province rushed into the program without a strategic plan.”

National Post, 2010

What is strategy what it is what it does

What is ‘Strategy’- What it Is ~ What it Does -

  • Strategy:

    • Clarity around where you are going and why you are going there.

  • e-Health strategy:

    • Documentation that describes and justifies the overall approach to be taken by a country (or organisation) for progressive implementation of e-health solutions.

  • Strategy is key:

    • Foundation for sustainable e-health implementation.


What is strategy quite different from policy but often used interchangeably

What is ‘Strategy’ ?- Quite Different from Policy, but often used Interchangeably !! -
