Dr. Mohamed Alarakhia

We are thrilled to announce that the Digital Health Executive of the Year has been awarded to our Managing Director, Dr. Mohamed Alarakhia!


Canadian Health Infomatics Awards (CHIA) are sponsored by Digital Health Canada and ITAC Health and are presented at the annual CHIA Gala at e-Health. The Digital Health Executive of the Year award recognizes an individual Executive whose outstanding contributions as a leader have helped advance Digital Health or Virtual Health in Canada.


As the Managing Director at the eHealth Centre of Excellence, Dr. Alarakhia’s leadership has guided our organization to strive for digital health excellence over the past several years! The eCE has developed and deployed digital health tools and services that have strongly influenced health outcomes and driven improvements within the healthcare system.


The recent announcement of 10,000 Virtual Visits through the Quality Based Improvements in Care (QBIC) program, and the 41,000 (and climbing!) eReferrals recently sent, both demonstrate the community’s confidence in the usage of digital health across the region.


Additional milestones and high adoption rates are not far behind the two most recent announcements regarding Virtual Visits and eReferrals! The image below provides a comprehensive summary of how digital health is being used and adopted across the many facets of healthcare:

Thank you to all our stakeholders for your consistent involvement in the development and progression of digital health in our healthcare community! It is the unwavering support from all of you that continues to drive innovation forward and allows our team at the eCE to continue deploying digital health technology.
