With support from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Government of Manitoba, MindSet is integrating Manitoba’s extensive clinical health data into a cohesive and readily accessible province-wide data platform. Join us for this special forum—moderated by Dr. Brock Wright, CEO of Shared Health—featuring presentations and panel discussions with patients, clinicians, researchers, health system decision makers, and industry representatives.

Participants at this special two-hour forum will:

  1. Understand how MindSet partners are building an integrated provincial health data platform in Manitoba.

  2. Learn how three innovative clinical trials will use this integrated health data platform to demonstrate how the platform will benefit patients, clinicians, the Manitoba health system, researchers, and industry.

  3. Understand the opportunities and long-term potential this data platform offers for the future.
