Dave is the Director of Digital Operations for the Airdrie & Area Health Co-op (AAHC). AAHC is a community-wide initiative which aims to empower individuals, providers, and organizations to “Our Your Own Health”, with the goal of becoming Canada’s Healthiest Community. Dave is responsible for developing a digital strategy for a digital health ecosystem through a connection of systems ranging from health & healthcare providers, municipal, government, schools, and local businesses. AAHC is part of a full community effort recognizing that in order to truly affect health, it needs to be a group effort with the individual at the center.
Prior to working with AAHC, Dave has spent time with Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the World Health Organization (WHO) working on end-user focussed systems to connect and utilize data from disparate data sources. He was also the first data manager for the Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network (CPCSSN), which extracted and utilized data from over 15 different Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) across Canada.
