Subject: Creating resource directories and asset maps: your guidance, please.
We are reaching out to you for advice, guidance and engagement in the areas of creating resource directories and asset maps, leveraged through CATA traditional and social media, now reaching over 2 million views.
Using an eProfile tool that our team has developed, the CATAAlliance Mobile Health Advisory Board established as one of its priorities the creation of a mobile health resource directory and asset map.
Most information about mobile healthcare activities in Canada amount to a regional or soloed snapshot of innovation.
The goal is to create a web-based, living, searchable database of Canadian research & development and innovation in the mobile healthcare space. This will improve the capacity for healthcare institutions, LIHNs, academic institutions and commercial sectors to further advance mobile innovation for the delivery of health and wellness services. It will also help attract foreign investment.
Your feedback to project lead, David Farnes (firstname.lastname@example.org) would be most appreciated as we develop our first resource directory and asset map. David, will be able to provide you with additional background.
