Event Overview - 2006 Government Technologies Conference and Expo
The 2006 Government Technologies Conference and Expo explores innovative information technologies utilized to serve citizens better. As one of Canada¡¯s most important and growing annual events for the Canadian public sector IT community, the Government Technologies Conference and Expo addresses specific Government issues and challenges, and presents new, practical solutions developed to solve the technological challenges of the public sector.
Government must adopt and implement new technologies to deliver key services to citizens, in response to the growing demand for greater accessibility and accountability by the public. Currently, all households in Canada use the Internet and other technologies to access and obtain public sector services, including Government information (33%), education/training (25%) or Health information (35%). Furthermore, according to Industry Canada, the estimated growth of the global e-commerce market is projected at $6.5 trillion by 2006, and Canada¡¯s online sales revenue rose to $28.3 billion in 2004, up over 40% from $18.9 billion in 2003. Therefore, e-commerce initiatives and solutions are a lucrative and valuable investment for Governments and both the public and private sectors. The Government Technologies Conference and Expo facilitates the discovery and adoption of such technologies that ensure exceptional service delivery.
Hosted in Canada¡¯s capital city, on the doorstep of Parliament; the Government Technologies Conference and Expo overcomes jurisdictional boundaries and bureaucratic barriers, facilitating the free sharing of information between all three levels of Government (federal, provincial, municipal). As an established Ottawa event, it attracts key IT professionals, developers, architects and engineers, to showcase their solutions to all members of the public sector, and provide a better level of service to all Canadian citizens.
The 2006 Government Technologies Conference and Expo will focus on many practical, in-demand government and public sector initiatives and solutions, including:
Technology Trends in Government
Governments are constantly seeking to improve the level of service delivered to their citizens while also striving for efficiency. A critical component of this goal is the design and implementation of appropriate technologies. This event will feature presentations that outline some of the current steps that governments are taking to innovate and improve their information and service technologies. These can include Information Management, IT outsourcing by government, Global Case Management, etc.
Today, Governments are focused on delivering key public services electronically. In addition to deciding what services to deliver in this fashion, vital issues of privacy, security, authentication, and data management must be resolved. Nonetheless, there is no doubt that major benefits can be derived for both government and citizens. To enhance these benefits over the last several years, the Government of Canada has underlined the importance of offering Public Sector Horizontal Service Initiatives, since its model includes collaboration of all levels of government. This ambitious goal allows for effective interaction with citizens and businesses and aims to enhance access to government in a more efficient manner.
The growing use and consolidation of IT in governmental operations poses serious new security threats. Canadian Governments understand the gravity of these threats and have taken steps towards the mitigation of such risks. The Operational Security Standard, called Management of Information Technology Security (MITS), looks to define the security standards that federal governments must adhere in order to protect their information.
E-learning and the Federal Government
Technology professionals are often vital components of an organizational web, constantly working to support and improve the flow and management of information. Managing tasks at work while also trying to keep up to date with the most current technologies and expansion of personal and technical skills is a must. Over time this can lead to outdated IT management systems, causing major inefficiencies and loss of competitive advantage. Many e-Learning opportunities for such individuals will be discussed at the event.
Event Overview - 2006 Health Technologies Conference and Expo
The 2006 Health Technologies Conference and Expo is the ideal platform to facilitate learning and cooperation amongst IT Health Care professionals and executives focused on delivering the highest level of service for Canadian citizens.
Health care in Canada is a $105 billion industry ¨C one of our country's largest expenditures. Of this, $2 billion to $3 billion is spent on information technology (IT) annually, according to Statistics Canada. Furthermore, Ottawa has an established IT industry and a large life sciences community. There are many examples of successful adoptions of IT in the provision of health care and in clinical research. Thus, Ottawa serves as the perfect host for the Health Technologies Conference and Expo, where the most advanced solutions in e-Health Information Technology will be discovered, presented and discussed openly, enabling citizens to make well-informed health care decisions.
The 2006 Health Technologies Conference and Expo will focus on many innovative and revolutionary health care solutions, including:
e-Health is the latest revolution in the medical industry, featuring a wide array of opportunities to deliver improved services to citizens. However, before e-Health can become synonymous with e-xcellence, much remains to be decided. Many questions about integration, consolidation, security, etc, still linger. Despite these issues, e-Health promises to improve citizen¡¯s health by emphasizing healthier lifestyles, facilitating faster and more informed decisions, and improving efficiency across the board. Recent developments and issues of the status of e-Health will be covered at the event.
Electronic Health Records
Today, the Electronic Health Records (EHR) environment is one of ever evolving functionality and complexity. The wide implementation of EHR is an inevitable development in the health industry. Intended to help health professionals manage and provide better and faster services to patients, the integration of such systems will allow instant data input and retrieval in multiple locations. Having access to one universal patient file will allow for more informed decision-making. By attending you will learn more about the current state of EHR as well as present issues affecting its implementation.
A major component in the modernization of healthcare is Telehealth, which can make access to healthcare services more convenient and easily available no matter where the patient and clinician may be. Access to specialized professionals for those patients residing in rural areas can be delivered much simpler and faster without the need for travel. By learning how such services can also link doctors with each other to facilitate the exchange of leading edge information in the industry, you will gain a greater appreciation for Telehealth¡¯s potential.
Privacy and Security
No matter how convenient or efficient a system may be, its number one priority should be security. With the imminent implementation of Electronic Health Records, highly private and sensitive information will be available at the touch of a button. Such immediate access places new constraints on security and calls for new and more innovative ways to protect the sensitive data. The conference will host several speakers who will explore and provide insight into the current issues of privacy and security of sensitive information in the medical field.
