Health care delivery is undergoing a major transformation – a shift from independent providers providing episodic one-to-one patient services towards multidisciplinary teams who provide more comprehensive care to patients. While this new approach may take different forms, the objective is the same: to invest in quality, health outcomes and patient experience across the circle of care.

This kind of transformation, which is centred around citizens and stakeholders, requires a cross-functional approach and the integration of human, organizational and technological aspects. At CGI we work with our clients to simplify their digital environment, and offer comprehensive expertise in the design and integration of clinical, IT and business solutions to support collaboration between different health care providers.
