Denmark trip to focus on health data management
Minister of Service Alberta Nate Glubish will travel to Denmark to learn more about the Scandinavian nation’s approach to managing health data and how it can improve outcomes for Albertans.
Minister Glubish was invited by the Danish Embassy to see first-hand how Denmark’s approach to managing health-care data improves outcomes for its citizens. He will learn about practical applications of data to inform research, support innovative technologies and usher in new opportunities to improve the delivery of essential services to Albertans.
“One of my passion projects has been to modernize the way we use, store and manage data so we can produce better services and outcomes for Albertans, including within health care. Denmark’s invitation gives us the opportunity to learn about their successes and bring home opportunities with the potential to improve health outcomes for Albertans while also improving efficiency of the health-care system and making the most of Albertans’ tax dollars.”
Nate Glubish, Minister of Service Alberta
Alberta’s government is working to create value for Albertans by igniting data-driven innovation to improve public services, attract investment, create jobs and strengthen economic diversification while upholding privacy and ethical considerations. As Alberta’s tech sector continues to grow rapidly, there may be opportunities for partnerships to help government modernize the way it delivers public services.
Minister Glubish will be accompanied by his chief of staff and an official from Service Alberta. They will leave Oct. 24 and return Oct. 29.
Mission expenses will be posted on the travel and expense disclosure page.
The Alberta government is committed to working with its national and international partners to advance shared interests that can lead to new opportunities for people and businesses in Alberta and around the world.
