HealthCare 365 Takes Part in Important SPARK Project

 

We are excited to participate in Phase 2 of SPARK. During this phase HealthCare 365 will not get access to provincial digital health data assets; however, we are working with SPARK to help further develop repeatable, simplified processes to expedite access to provincial digital health repositories. SPARK is a pathway that will help ignite innovation in Ontario so that Ontario’s nearly 14 million citizens could have their health information electronically.

SPARK’s goal is to simplify access to provincial digital health information and give patients access to their own health information on electronic devices – faster and easier.

SPARK’s goal is to expedite, simplify and put in place repeatable, simplified processes to help innovators get their products to patients.

We are at the beginning of this journey with the SPARK program. HealthCare 365 will contribute to help ignite healthcare innovation in Ontario.

SPARK is a pathway. SPARK does not develop digital health solutions: it helps those who do. SPARK is a collaborative partnership among the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, eHealth Ontario,MaRS Discovery District, and University Health Network(UHN). Working with innovators, this partnership brings together leaders who share a common vision to stimulate consumer digital health innovation for Ontario. SPARK makes it easier for digital health innovators to safely and securely flow provincial health information into the hands of patients and their health service providers.
