|Assistant Deputy Minister cites Innovation Cell research in address||This work is influencing the way decision-makers conceive of and address caregiver issues facing our healthcare system, initially by supporting analysis for a keynote address by the Assistant Deputy Minister before decision makers which discussed low-cost, no-cost, and low-tech approaches to alleviating caregiver burden. As of April 23, 2010, the talk entitled “The Day we Stop Caring” by the Assistant Deputy Minister (given May 13, 2009) had been viewed viewed 2,557 times and the slide deck had been downloaded 21,566 times by healthcare administrators, the public and by decision-makers across Canada.||2454964.513 May 2009|
|Bank of patients’ needs, wants and preferences||As of April 22, 2009 MHI had aggregated 2,791 patient-led petitions (854 petitions voted upon, with 1,215 votes, and 230 comments); 72 ideas (48 ideas voted, 450 votes); 82 micro-ideas (77 micro-ideas voted, 482 votes); 5417 patents (833 patents voted, 1090 votes). MHI was one of several leading health 2.0 models presented to decision makers for anti-stigma initiatives. On the Web, patients have expressed how MHI is positively influencing the public experience with the health system by opening new channels for patient and caregiver participation and engagement towards a more open and transparent health system. Myhealthinnovation.com has a Google™ footprint of over 135,000 and is, after 12 months, the most publicly accessible and visible forum in the world for submitting and voting on new health innovations (as determined by typing in “innovation” and “health” into Google). The Chronic Disease Prevention and Management Portfolio in the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has used MHI in an initiative to capture new ideas, as has Longwoods Publishing and the National Post newspaper.||2454922.51 April 2009||2455560.530 December 2010|
|First Canadian HealthCamp unconference with IBM||More than 100 global “Web influencers” (including patients, providers, policy makers, journalists) from different countries, with different training, and from different ethnocultural backgrounds met face to face, and many more followed the conversation online (via Twitter™). Organizations in attendance included the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, and the Health Council of Canada. We concluded HealthCamp with a “call to action” to continue discussing the role of patients in healthcare. This unconference leveraged generous in-kind donations from IBM and initiated a new analytical project to better understand the connectivity of the online conversation and to prioritize the sentiments expressed at the conference. With the impetus gained from HealthCamp, the Innovation Cell is now leading the organization of Mental HealthCamp 2010 to be held on May 28, 2010 at the Toronto Reference Library. One of Mental HealthCamp’s goals is to reduce stigma and improve access for all Ontarians (http://mentalhealthcampto.org/).||2455091.517 September 2009|
|Social Media for Quality Improvement||We are working with quality improvement groups within two major teaching hospitals -- Providence Healthcare and The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health -- to use social media to improve quality of care. Our scan of best practices in hospitals’ use of social media is now informing the development of an ‘e-Toolkit’ of case studies and informed discussion around lessons learned about the potential and limitations of social media to improve healthcare. Our scan of best practices is evolving dynamically with open and transparent contributions from researchers in Spain, United Kingdom, and the United States to help us improve and refine the e-Toolkit.||2455160.525 November 2009||2455530.530 November 2010|

|World's First Flu Chat Lab||Results of our assessment and The Chat Lab were demonstrated at HealthAchieve 2009 and at the Innovation Expo where policy makers and visitors had the chance to interact and discuss our findings. We found that Web sites containing anti-vaccine sentiment remained popular after the approval of the vaccine by Health Canada. From October 2009 to December 2009, our vaccine safety perception results were shared with decision-makers who are studying our initiative to determine best practices in public health communications during a pandemic.||2455136.51 November 2009||2455270.515 March 2010|
