 Integrating CANImmunize with the DHIR: Using technology to connect Ontarians with Public Health


On November 22, 2017 at Queens Park, it was announced that CANImmunize would be the first consumer health application to integrate with the Ontario Digital Health Immunization Repository (DHIR). The CANImmunize team will discuss the use of technology to improve vaccine uptake and series completion and what this integration means for Ontarians, clinicians and public health officials. The team will describe their work with Ottawa Public Health and how interoperability can impact cover rates and data quality in immunization information systems.

Presenters: Dr. Kumanan Wilson and Katherine Atkinson (Corresponding)

Dr. Kumanan Wilson is a general internal medicine specialist and a researcher specializing in immunization policy and the use of new technologies in Public Health. He is the founder of The Ottawa Hospital mHealth Lab, a multidisciplinary team of engineers, researchers and staff focused on developing technologies which address healthcare challenges.

Katherine Atkinson is the Lead of Research and Business Development for the mHealth Lab and a PhD Candidate at the Department of Public Health Sciences at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. Katherine is studying the use of technology to improve immunization practice.
