In December 2022, Dr. Heather Ross and Dr. Joseph Cafazzo were named University Health Network’s Inventors of the Year in recognition of their development and commercialization of Medly– a remote heart failure care tool powered by software and AI. As part of #ECHODiscovery’s Fireside Chat speaker series, Heather and Joe joined us to talk all things Medly – from what’s required for a successful collaboration to what’s in store for the future of Medly Therapeutics as it spreads, scales, and integrates new features.
By supporting members of the TRANSFORM HF community in the development of new projects, our Collaboration Starter Grants aim to advance our mission of digital innovation for equitable heart failure care.
Another key objective of these grants is to foster new research partnerships and expand our network – something Dr. Jay Shaw has been able to do on a national scale through his pan-Canadian policy analysis of virtual care technologies.
Led by Dr. Angela Mashford-Pringle, this three-day land-based course will provide TRANSFORM HF members with the opportunity to learn from Indigenous Elders, Knowledge Keepers, and Indigenous peoples with lived experience of heart failure.
