Collaborative Innovation in Hamilton with IBM
This month, IBM’s Collaborative Innovation Centre – Healthcare, Hamilton is hosting us at their temporary space on the 14th floor of Commerce Place right at the centre of the city. IBM Canada and Hamilton Health Sciences announced plans to establish a new centre focused on healthcare innovation. The centre will give area healthcare providers, researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs advanced technology tools and expertise to improve healthcare outcomes and put Hamilton on the map as a hub for healthcare innovation in Canada.
Gordon Alexander from IBM will introduce the Collaborative Innovation Centre and explain what they are working to accomplish with healthcare innovation in Hamilton.
Jackie Crews from HHS will review a recent project with IBM to dramatically reduce the number of Code Blue events in the hospital. This is what has been achieved with the electronic Hamilton Early Warning Score (HEWS).
