HealthAchieve2010 Partners with COACH to Grow eHealth Track

COACH: Canada's Health Informatics Association helps deliver even more value to eHealth delegates, Health Informatics professionals, exhibitors, sponsors, advertisers at November 8-10 conference and exhibition in Toronto

TORONTO, April 14 /CNW/ - HealthAchieve2010 and COACH announce today their partnership to provide a forum for all health care providers, executives and staff to strengthen their understanding of and build their capacity to deliver transformation through eHealth. HealthAchieve Vice President Warren DiClemente articulated what COACH brings to HealthAchieve2010:

"COACH is dedicated to advancing the health informatics (HI) profession and promoting a clear understanding of HI within the Canadian health system. This partnership with HealthAchieve2010 helps all of our attendees to appreciate the value of health information technology to their organizations. We expect COACH's educative and facilitation role will result in a more enriching eHealth Track experience for delegates and access to a broader set of delegates by our exhibitors, sponsors and advertisers."

"COACH is excited about this partnership," said Lydia Lee, COACH President-Elect and Vice President and CIO, University Health Network & Integrated CIO, Shared Information Management Services (SIMS). "An eHealth track at HealthAchieve2010 is an ideal forum for COACH to build on our commitment to advancing the HI profession with established health care leaders in Ontario."

"This is a great complement to our national eHealth conference in the Spring, with its focus on current, compelling issues and key learnings," said COACH CEO Don Newsham. "It also facilitates the continuation and growth of the COACH Fall Forum in Ontario at one of the largest, most prestigious health care events in North America."

The eHealth Track features presentations, education sessions and keynotes with highly prominent thought leaders. For example, the 2009 program included former U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich, TVO's Steve Paikin and André Picard, National Public Health Reporter at the Globe and Mail. A similarly prominent slate of thinkers, experts and learning sessions is now in development for the 2010 edition of HealthAchieve, to be held November 8, 9 and 10 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
