Health Cities builds better health outcomes across Canada
The focus of Health Cities is to transform innovations from our health sector into solutions that have commercial application and global relevance. A huge opportunity for disruption in the health sector will occur in our communities and in our homes – addressing the issues that affect citizens’ health before it becomes chronic or acute.
What we do
We use our region’s strengths in technology to transform these platforms into solutions (such as virtual care, home health monitoring, synthetic data). Technologies like these will enhance the experience for patients and increase their ability to manage their own wellness.
computer systems that are able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.
the use and development of computer systems that are able to learn and adapt without following explicit instructions, by using algorithms and statistical models to analyze and draw conclusions from patterns in data.
Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are examples of immersive technology. They create unique experiences by merging the physical world with a digital or simulated reality.
the interconnection via the internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data.
