Online tools…digital coaches…biofeedback monitors…social network patient experts… my genome results – the increasingly wider use of these types of resources characterizes a change in the relationships and responsibilities between providers and citizens. Canadians have the ability to be knowledgeable managers of their personal health care, along with their trusted providers. Delve into this exciting subject on enabling consumers to become more resourceful, accountable and responsible for their own health, in partnership with clinicians and the healthcare system at the BCHIMPS / COACH Spring Symposium – Disruptive Innovation: My Health, My Choices.

Bob Gann, Director of Partnerships & Strategy, NHS Choices, United Kingdom
Developing a New Multi-Channel Platform for Patients in the National Health Service
In England there have been successful information services for patients and the public - in particular the NHS Choices website (www.nhs.uk) and the NHS Direct telephone service.

11:00 - 12:00
Dr. Carlos Rizo, Changemaker-at-Large, Innovation Cell, Massey College, University of Toronto. Founder, Quantified Self Toronto.
Citizen Science: Crowdsourcing Behavioural Change
More than ever before people are starting to demand access to the latest knowledge, best practices, and trends on health, wellness and wellbeing. People want to feel empowered, optimal, embracing change. With the wide availability of real-enough-time access to information, they are realizing that tailored knowledge is still far from reality. Equipped with smartphones, activity trackers and other devices, a selected group of amateur "scientists" are now collecting, analyzing and sharing data systematically. This new field known as citizen science, crowd-science, crowdsource science or networked science, opens the doors to active public participation in global research and "social" behavioural modification. During his presentation, Carlos will share insights from his spinal cord injury recovery, experiences from others who are using communities and technologies to learn more about themselves, and "hacks" to optimize various aspects of our lives.

About the speaker: Carlos is a physician, medical futurist, patient activist, adventure sportsman, and advocate for personal healthcare, who also holds fellowships in Consumer Health Informatics and eHealth Innovation. As a result of a spectacular accident hang gliding in 2006, he became an expert in participatory and collaborative decision making models of patient care during life-threatening conditions. By tracking his spinal cord injury, retrieving his personal health information, and integrating it with the best available evidence from the Web, Carlos found answers not available on medical textbooks or expert medical minds, which enabled him to recover completely. Being a patient now defines everything Carlos does. He has ample experience in research, global health systems, new media, social and open innovation, online collaboration, internet startups and entrepreneurship.Carlos is the founder of Quantified Self Toronto and Changemaker-at-Large, Innovation Cell, Massey College, University of Toronto.
12:00 - 13:00
Lunch
13:00 - 14:00
Dr. Pierre Meulien President and CEO, Genome Canada
Genomics and Personalized Health - Opportunities and Challenges for Canada
Pierre will discuss how genomics is enabling personalized medicine in Canada. He will discuss the hype, the hope and the reality and demonstrate how Genome Canada is approaching the personalized health paradigm from both a scientific and technological perspective as well as integrating economic issues, data storage, management and analysis components and the challenges that are inherent in systemic change.

About the speaker: Pierre was appointed to his current role Oct. 18, 2010. Prior to this, Dr. Meulien served as Chief Scientific Officer for Genome British Columbia from 2007 to 2010 where he promoted the organization's ongoing scientific strategy, focusing on the science of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics within the larger realm of biotechnology and life sciences. Facilitating the translation of genome-based technologies into end user communities across many life science sectors was also a key responsibility. From 2002 to 2007, he served as the founding CEO of the Dublin Molecular Medicine Centre (now Molecular Medicine Ireland) which linked the three medical schools and six teaching hospitals in Dublin to build a critical mass in molecular medicine and translational research. The Centre managed the Euro 45 Million "Program for Human Genomics" financed by the Irish government and was responsible for coordinating the successful application for the first Wellcome Trust funded Clinical Research Centre to be set up in Ireland. For over 20 years, Dr. Meulien has managed expert research teams with a number of organizations, including Aventis Pasteur in Toronto (Senior Vice President of R&D), and in Lyon, France (Director of Research). He also spent seven years with the French biotechnology company Transgene in Strasbourg, France.
