The information age: improving and transforming the Canadian health ecosystem

The revolution in health information technology (health IT) has changed the way we address the health of our communities and our nation. In recent years there has been a significant shift in the evolution of health care in Canada to acknowledge the important role that data has in addressing important gaps, improving both the health status of populations, as well as the quality, cost-effectiveness, access and value of healthcare.

Join our panel from CAPHC's Canadian Paediatric Decision Support Network, and the Canadian Network for Child and Youth Rehabilitation, as they share exciting new and advanced approaches in nationally implementing Canada’s Paediatric Rehabilitation Reporting System (PRRS), which aims to improve paediatric rehabilitation service delivery. Our panel will share innovative implementation methods along with the latest pan- Canadian inaugural report that aims to demonstrate and show case the transformational strides the project has made in existing and future paediatric rehabilitation centres.

Siam Javeid is the Manager of Decision Support and Senior Health Information Analyst at the Canadian Association of Paediatric Health Centres (CAPHC). She has over 8 years of project management experience and over 5 years working in the health care sector. In the last three years, Siam has led and worked close with clinical leaders and CIHI to take the PRRS project from inception to implementation and now PRRS is officially live to capture and share data from paediatric rehabilitation centres across the country. The PRRS program will allow a national network of organizations that provide rehabilitation services to children to benchmark the outcomes of their services with similar organizations across Canada. The program will support planning and decision making, help inform health service delivery and ultimately improve the services provided by rehabilitation centres from coast to coast. The experience of leading this project from its inception phase in 2014 to its launch phase has increased Siam’s eagerness and passion in leading organizational and health system change. She is eager to further apply new methodologies that will enhance health systems and bridge the knowledge and cultural gaps in the clinical and healthcare delivery sectors.

As CAPHC’s Canadian Paediatric Decision Support Network (CPDSN) Decision Support Manager, Siam also leads various national decision support, quality and operational performance activities. Her primary areas of focus has been on supporting information needs and advancing paediatric empirical decision support in Canada with the goal of improving health care and the health of Canadian children, youth and their families. Siam holds a Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences from the University of Ottawa and is currently completing her Master’s degree in Health Informatics in the executive stream at the University of Toronto.
