Is Technology Adoption the Biggest Threat to Healthcare?

Exploring the connection between technological benefit and practical application.

We take for granted that our healthcare system focuses on patients. But that hasn’t always been the case.

One hundred years ago, the concept of patient-focused care started in Ontario with William Osler, who is considered by many to be the father of modern medicine. One hundred years later, Ontario may be on the cusp of the next revolution in medicine as technology and innovation in the healthcare sector experience massive growth.

But a challenge remains: how can we ensure that these technologies are adopted in a field so traditionally bound by professional best practises that tend to prevent rapid evolution? What perspectives are Ontario’s new biotech pioneers offering to advance the field?
