Conclusion of the COVID-19
digital health task force

In the Spring of 2020, at the height of the pandemic, BML Health launched the COVID-19 Emergency Digital Health Task Force encompassing professionals from within the Montreal digital health ecosystem. At the time we did not have a clear mission, but we understood that at this moment of crisis we could help our healthcare systems, communities and organizations in need.

We mobilized and collaborated to help improve things, all of us motivated to impact the field in a positive way. The experience illustrated that our community is strong, dedicated, and ready to collaborate to improve health technology development and healthcare delivery in Canada.

Until now there has been significant progress. The ongoing Canadian vaccination campaign is bringing the gradual reopening of society and return to normal life, and the greatly needed stabilization of the healthcare system.

We have concluded the activities of the Task Force as of July 23rd 2021, but there is still work to be done. We applaud and encourage those who remain on the front lines as they continue to help Canadians in need.
