eShift - Collaboration in Research, Celebrating Outcomes event summary

May 10, 2017

Thank you deeply to all who were present and joined forces in helping organize our eShift® - Collaboration in Research, Celebrating Outcomes Event taking place in Toronto on May 10, 2017.

The conference brings together delegates from Canada and the UK with a view to sharing and celebrating the findings and outcomes of their joint research efforts pertaining to the successful launch of innovative technology and implementation of our eShift model of care.

We hope everything ran smoothly and everyone now has an experience to remember, and we look forward to seeing you at the next event!


  • Cascading Delegations (providing a global perspective on the emerging trend of leveraging lower skilled resources under direct supervision by specialized clinical staff).
  • EnCompass UK Panel Discussion (exploring how to build collaborations with industry in order to address major global health care challenges, presenting the findings of an eShift implementation in a Yorkshire hospice and a roadmap for future developments of eShift in the UK).
  • Post Acute Stroke Rehabilitation Working Lunch (shedding light on a groundbreaking and novel model of care recently launched in the Windsor region focused on in-home rehabilitation of post acute stroke patients).
  • COPD/CHF Early Discharge and Readmission Prevention in South West Ontario (giving insights into how leveraging hospital, CCAC, and provider staff working under a single mandate has delivered a 59% reduction in length of stay, 48% reduction in cost, and a 42% reduction in readmission of patients suffering from chronic disease).
  • Labatt's school of Nursing Western University, 3-year study results (provide access to findings and observations from a 3-year study of the eShift model of cascading delegation in the South West LHIN with emphasis on examining the impact on both informal and professional care providers).
