New CHIEF Executive Forum Resources

The CHIEF Executive Forum Virtual Care Working Group has created two important new Canadian resources:

  1. Virtual Care in Canada: Maturity Model Framework, a national, Maturity Model Framework that will enable organizations, jurisdictions, and institutions to identify where they find themselves on the virtual health journey and what steps they need to take to improve their performance
  2. Virtual Care in Canada:Lexicon, to accompany the maturity model and provide a foundational, common language for virtual care planning across and between jurisdictions and sectors.

These two important resources are now available to all CHIEF Executive Forum and Digital Health Canada members. Email to request a copy.
