The pandemic proved Canada’s health care system can — and must continue — to share data to deliver the best services for Canadians.
On December 8, The Data Effect will bring together 100 of Canada’s public and private leadership in Ottawa with the expertise to continue advances in health data sharing.
As the Chief Public Health Officer’s most recent report put it, we have a clear challenge: “in Canada, we are still working with multiple independent data systems that do not speak or connect with each other… One key step will be to establish an interoperable system that facilitates the linking and pooling of data from various sources, including epidemiological, clinical, and administrative data”.
There are rapidly emerging new tools to meet the mission of fully using our health-care data resources — all of which make new tools like AI more impactful. Each requires a mix of technology and leadership by our data stewards at the provincial, federal level, as well in doctors’ offices..
For the past decade, The Data Effect has been assembling Canada’s leaders on the cutting edge of how to use data for the public good.
Building off our recent public research and summary report on dialogue, this event in our nation’s capital will focus on how we can marry new policy and technologies to leverage public and private health care data to benefit all Canadians.

Panel: The Added Value of Connected Data
If there is broad agreement that connecting data sets can serve the public good and Canada’s public health - how do we prove it? How has COVID-19 highlighted the challenges and opportunities of connected data and analysis, and what needs to happen next?
Presentation: Responsible Access to Health Data Using Synthetic Data Generation
Panel: Data Stewardship, Services and Sharing: and the road to a
stronger public health data ecosystem
Our world is both more connected, and more fractured, than ever. Our systems and people create more than 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day, yet our ability to use it to improve our quality of life and our environment is siloed and happens in fits and starts. How might we use the foundations of stewardship, service and sharing to spark and inspire an ecosystem approach to public health?
Presentation: Learning from new insights to further improve serving Canadians
Panel: Research Innovation Through Connected Data
How can better connecting data sets from different sources drive research innovation in Canada?
