“We access our bank accounts with our phones and we pay our taxes online. We have not waited to integrate technology in these areas. Why are we waiting in health care? More people work in hospitals than in the automobile sector and more research is conducted in hospitals than in the pharmaceutical industry.

“Canada aspires to be a nation of innovators and to compete in an increasingly digital world. We should make sure to tap into the creativity and expertise of health-care professionals as we look for these new opportunities and bright ideas.”Alex Munter, president and CEO of the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Let's catch up on innovation in health care, Ottawa Citizen, August 4 2016
