TRANSFORM HF is pleased to announce the recipients of their 2023 Trainee Awards! Learn more about the heart failure trainees and their projects.
Isaac Chang and his team are developing a digital health technology called Smart Tile that can monitor a patient’s heart function while they sleep and alert clinicians, caregivers, and patients of any adverse events. Innovations like this are key for empowering people living with heart failure to manage their own care and stay out of hospital.
TRANSFORM HF is proud to work with the CHF Alliance and HeartLife Foundation to offer a free MasterClass for patient partners on engaging in research.
This MasterClass has been designed to train those with lived experience of cardiovascular conditions to be active members of research teams while building a national community of engaged patient partners.
Our Collaboration Starter Grants support members of our community working together by funding the initial activities of collaborative projects that align with the TRANSFORM HF mission. We are pleased to announce the recipients of our 2023 Collaboration Starter Grants.
Join us for a keynote address from a leader in the field and a TechEquity-themed pitch competition for $10K PLUS network with our community of clinicians, researchers, trainees, people with lived experience, and industry partners.
When it comes to digital innovation, Alex Mariakakis and his team are all ears! Meet our 2023 Seed Grant recipient, who’s aiming to make blood pressure monitoring more accessible using earbuds.
Earbuds have the potential to remove the cost of blood pressure cuffs, increase the ease of at-home monitoring, and could even out-perform smartwatches! Alex views earbuds as one of the next big platforms – not just for blood pressure monitoring, but for digital health in general.
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.
University Health Network and Boehringer Ingelheim Canada partner to impact patients lives and help a healthcare system under strain
The Ontario healthcare system is under strain, still recovering from the demands of the COVID-19 pandemic. The University Health Network (UHN) and Boehringer Ingelheim (Canada) Ltd. have partnered to address a critical need of heart failure patients.
The objective of the partnership is to expand patient reach of UHN’s successful Medly Program— an innovative, digital therapeutic solution that delivers the benefits of specialized clinical heart failure management at home while improving quality of life and reducing hospitalizations.
We are pleased to announce that both TRANSFORM HF’s applicants to the 2022 CIHR Health Systems Impact Fellows (HSI) competition, Sarah Lawrason and Samuel Petrie, were successful!
Darshan Brahmbhatt’s interest in heart failure innovations and remote monitoring led him to become a 2021 TRANSFORM HF Trainee.
As his Trainee Award comes to a close, we sat down with Darshan to talk about his research over the past year and where he sees the field of digital health heading.
