Demonstrating the value of SmartCare in Quebec
SmartCare is the use of patient-centred data and mHealth for remote monitoring and artificial intelligence research in healthcare.
Laurie's Vision is Our Vision
The Quebec SmartCare Consortium believes in a future where all healthcare interactions in Quebec will be digitally-enabled and all healthcare data will be accessible to patients.
Our vision is inspired by the vision of Laurie Hendren, co-founder of the Opal patient portal.
Laurie was a patient warrior, a computer scientist, and an inspiring woman who believed that all patients should have access to their healthcare data.
To meet the healthcare data needs of our stakeholders
The Quebec SmartCare Consortium is bringing together key Quebec stakeholders in patient-centered data, mHealth technologies, and AI research in order to demonstrate the benefits of SmartCare.
