Focus of the Panel Discussion: Our panel of Canadian healthcare IT experts working on international development projects present a sample of three innovative initiatives and lessons learned from the field in capacity building, chronic disease management and foodborn safety. Objectives: Present innovative international health projects applicable to improve Canada's health system Panel Perspectives Represented: 1) Lessons from capacity building in Africa: Building capacity and developing leadership, governance and management skills for senior healthcare leaders with 6 African countries in an innovative learning project based course with immediate repercussions and impacts on the delivery of care and patient outcomes. In our healthcare services organizations, especially in rural areas, clinicians and administrative personnel are often promoted to management roles without specific competency training in health IT management. The scarcity and gaps in support or training for those accountable to lead departments and deploy solutions affecting entire hospitals or health systems can lead to redesign challenges, rework and user acceptance of innovative solutions. 2) Lessons from diabetes management in the Kingdom of Tonga: Thanks to the implementation of an underground fibre optic cable in August of 2013, the Kingdom of Tonga was recently introduced to high speed Internet. This has opened the door to a wealth of opportunities for the island nation, including the establishment of eHealth as a means to support healthcare delivery. Healthcare accessibility is a major problem for Tonga. The nation's relatively small population of approximately 100,000 people is divided across 36 inhabited islands. To better support the Tonga's remote population and to trial the nation's eHealth readiness, a remote patient monitoring program was established for geographically isolated gestational diabetes patients. 3) Lessons from food safety and public health in Mongolia: As cattle prices double since its slump in 2010, Canada regrettably had to report its 19th case of mad cow disease as late as in February 2015. This resulted in the Canadian beef industry having its doors slammed to several global markets. How do you ensure your country's consumers are being supplied with food that is safe to eat? And by whose standards is it considered 'safe'? As pace of globalization rapidly increases, so does the need for trust in the efficiency and transparency of processes and procedures to facilitate trade movement of food and agricultural products. Using the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement on the application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS), the Asian Development Bank engaged Gevity to provide strategic guidance and technical advisory in putting together financing for the Government of Mongolia to protect human, animal and plant health from risks arising from trade in food and agricultural products. Questions for Discussion: What lessons learned can you draw to your own provincial projects from this international work? 140 Character Summary: Capacity building, mobile health for chronic disease management and food safety solutions using tested lessons learned from international projects.
