The Data Effect, presented by CityAge

Multi-billion dollar public and private investments in health care are on the horizon. How can these investments ensure that our health care system rewards innovation, and is used as an asset that encourages economic growth and healthier cities?

British Columbia has a massive opportunity in the new St Paul’s hospital. How can that opportunity be used to build a healthier city and a new health precinct that yields a stronger economy and creates jobs?

To date, more than 1,000 leaders from across North America and Europe have attended The Data Effect. At the same time, CityAge has organized over 20 additional conferences that address opportunities in business of city-building. 

In the sixth edition of The Data Effect, CityAge will combine these audiences – in health care research and in next generation city-building – to build a powerful network who can implement the innovations the next generation of Canadian health requires.
