The Data Effect
The Sheraton Wall Centre
Vancouver, BC, Canada
March 11, 2016
Multi-billion dollar public and private investments in health care are on the horizon. How can these investments — combined with our unique data sets — ensure that innovation in our health care system fosters better care and a stronger economy?
To answer that vital question, CityAge is organizing the sixth edition of The Data Effect in Vancouver on March 11th, 2016.
We will look at how to better link and use our data, to catalyze research and the technology sector. We’ll also look at how to design new health care systems and infrastructure, and to ensure that British Columbia’s major investments in technology and research translate into innovation and economic growth.
To date, more than 1,000 leaders from across North America and Europe have attended The Data Effect. This sixth edition of The Data Effect will continue to build the network of leaders who are achieving real progress in the use of data to build a better health care system.
CityAge is also announcing that the 7th edition of The Data Effect will return to Ottawa in March, 2017.
