Background, Proceedings, and Outlook from the Canada-US Connected Health Workshop

The Canada-US Connected Health Workshop, organized in conjunction with the Connected Health Conference in the Washington, DC metro area on December 14, 2016, assembled more than eighty participants from multiple disciplines and sectors in both countries to discuss regulatory and policy coordination in connected health. The term “connected health” is associated with a number of definitions, for the purposes of our event and paper, we define connected health as patient healthcare services enabled through digital health technologies delivered where the patient is located, when they need it, and in a manner that is conveniently available.

This report summarizes the workshop discussions, while providing rationale and recommendations for greater cross-border cooperation in the regulation of digital health technology.
