Abstract Submission Information:

What presentation formats are available?

We welcome abstract submissions to fit a variety of concurrent programming options, including Panel, Oral, Rapid-Fire, and Poster Presentations. 

Who should present?

We want to hear from Canadian digital health professionals, practitioners, front-line care delivery workers, IT/IM specialists, vendors, project managers, patients and caregivers, and anyone working with technology to improve health for Canadians. We are looking for stories from people representing acute care, community care, home care, long-term care, First Nations health, mental health, and telehealth/virtual health sectors.

e-Health strives to represent in its programming the diversity of the Canadian digital health community, and we actively welcome submissions from digital health and healthcare delivery professionals, patients and caregivers who are Black, Indigenous, LGBTQIA2S+, or living with disability, as well as People of Colour or members of other racialized and marginalized groups. We aim to fill the conference program with a variety of perspectives, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes e-Health a better, richer learning experience.
