Event info from: RBC Teams Webex and Eventbrite: The Silver Tsunam:
Life-changing medical advancements have come at rapid speed. What has not been adopted at the same pace? Healthcare delivery.

From personalized medicine and fast-rehab to remote care and data management, new technologies are critical in fundamentally changing the way we care for seniors. By 2035, Canada's senior citizens will make up 23% of the country and a shortage of 199,000 long-term care beds will exist if action is not taken.
Mike Wessinger of PointClickCare and Michelle E. DiEmanuele of Trillium Health Partners join RBC Disruptors to explore how to address the silver tsunami with technology.
