Group Collaborates on Health Informatics System for Canada

A group of universities, health information associations, and companies in Canada, called the Pan-Canadian Health Informatics Collaboratory ( announced that they are in the final stages of creating a knowledge management and collaborative e-learning platform for Health Informatics to serve the health system and educational institutions across Canada. A prototype of the new system, which is based on LiveLink from Open Text, will be ready in July, with completion slated for December.

A unique aspect of the system will be its role as a nationwide repository for educational materials for the Health Informatics field. The system will allow educational content submitted from institutions across the country to be shared and reused, or tailored for new purposes. The repository will contain a wide range of information, including documents, educational materials and course modules; images, graphs and models; and audio and video content. The system will incorporate metadata and search capabilities to classify and organize educational content, and make it easily searchable and accessible by users.

The collaborative e-learning features will allow professors and students to interact within and between organizations. The e-learning component of the system will utilize Livelink MeetingZone, Open Text's online team meeting software, which is integrated with its Livelink software suite. MeetingZone provides an interactive online meeting environment where users can easily share ideas and opinions on subjects in real time.
