Pillars of Health

March 16, 2020

What is Pillars of Health?

Healthcare innovation cannot be done in silos. It requires the interplay of various actors with different expertise: researchers, entrepreneurs, clinicians, healthcare administrators, government officials, and industry executives. These are the people that make up the pillars of health and represent the sectors that have played integral roles in the development and maintenance of human health. In order to truly drive meaningful healthcare innovation, its stakeholders must work together.

Pillars of Health is an interdisciplinary networking event with the mission to provide a platform for members of the health community to interact, discuss ideas, and share information in a free and open space. Hosted in partnership with the Health Innovation Hub (H2i) and the University of Toronto's Translational Research Program, it is a unique opportunity to establish significant connections with likeminded individuals across traditional silos.

Planning the New Normal

May 13, 2020

“During these difficult and unforeseen times, it is vital that we take action when it comes to planning for the ‘New Normal’. When restrictions are partially lifted, our aim as a translational research community will be to provide momentum for innovation for the future.

What should be done first? How does one restart a translational research agenda? How does one maneuver within the new system? Which priorities; data collection, grant writing, journal publishing, should come first? What are the implications for trials, licencing, approvals in this ‘New Normal’?

Join key opinion leaders as we brainstorm and discuss strategies to start unravelling what will need to be done to find a new balance.”

COVID Contact Tracing: Opening Pandora’s box

June 3, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is a deadly crisis and, an opportunity for rapid technological and social change. Contact Tracing, a longstanding public health strategy for managing the spread of infections is a prime area for innovation. Contact tracing works by trying to identify everyone whom a sick person may have exposed. Then reaching out to potentially exposed people to help them take appropriate action.

To date, this has been a labour-intensive manual process, but the potential and prevalence of mobile for proximity and location tracking present a new and tempting Pandora’s box for epidemiological surveillance. Selectively delivering individualized alerts about potential exposure may be a significant tool for managing current and future outbreaks, informing health policy and expediting recovery.

But while there may be initial public health benefits, there may also be significant long-term risks and unintended consequences of their deployment.

Join us for a discussion of “Contact Tracing Apps”: How do they work? What are the trade-offs? Can we reap the benefits and minimize risks by building in Privacy by Design?
