On November 18th, Great Big Solutions will be a proud participant at the Innovations in Health Care Expo (www.health.gov.on.ca/innovations) at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (www.mtccc.com). We were selected from hundreds of applicants to present CompTracker to a large industry audience. The selection committee was looking to showcase groundbreaking initiatives in health care. This honour recognized Great Big Solutions as an innovator in health information management at a national level.
The information technology revolution is changing the way all services can be provided. The opportunities in health care alone are profound and impressive. Enthusiastic adopters have used CompTracker to strive to make the best possible work environment for health science educators and students. An innovative training environment plays an important role in teaching and retaining talented individuals in health care. By automating their administrative work, CompTracker allows educators to focus their time on training rather than completing paperwork.
CompTracker has truly come a long way from the first paramedic program that was looking for PDAs to be an alternative to log books seven years ago. Now completely web-enabled and on trendy mobile devices like iPhones, iPods too, CompTracker is found in a diverse range of health science programs on more than 20 colleges across the country.
Look for the GBS booth in the Innovations Expo. It is part of the Health Achieve 2009 Exhibition (www.healthachieve.com), the largest national health industry trade show. We welcome a chance to discuss ways to make health science education even more efficient.
