The Data Effect: Our Next Edge - Health Care

The Data Effect

The data age presents us with a new approach to build the economy and the country. Data, and the systems around it, are revolutionizing key sectors of the economy.

On December 1, the Data Effect will look at how data stands to be a key tool to build BC and Canada's competitive advantage in the global economy.  The event, presented by City Age Media in partnership with the Business Council of British Columbia, will lay out the practical steps required to ensure BC's global strengths in health care research and delivery can improve outcomes, create jobs and build the economy. 

The select audience will be drawn from government, business, research and the investment community and will map out the partnerships, policies and ideas that can make Canada a leader in the data age. 


The event will feature an opening address which will look at the role of data when competing in the global economy and four panels on the following topics:

  • Building a Health Innovation Cluster: How data can build the new economy
  • Innovation and the Cloud: Building the architecture for success
  • Data and Economic Development: New partnerships for growth
  • Data's Next Edge: Where are the next applications for data in the economy?
