The Canada RUG is a forum for Canadian users of Cerner solutions.
In 1995, some of Cerner’s Canadian clients wished they could meet together to discuss the changes that they were all faced with, including more computers that were making their way into the hospitals. It was a scary, but exciting change that was happening all across Canada.
London Health Services invited 15 people to gather in a small meeting room at St. Joseph’s Hospital to discuss such topics. North York General Hospital, Toronto East General Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospitals were all very active participants.
Since then, we have grown into a ‘Family of Users’ called the Cerner Canadian Regional User Group (RUG). This group meets annually, with as many as 350 attendees. Other benefits to attending the annual conference:
Develop personal relationships with Cerner associates
Network locally with users in your region and learn how to work through similar challenges
Make your workflows more efficient
Experience and discuss new and emerging technologies and products from Cerner-approved partners
Get new ideas
Lower costs allows organizations to send more users
Continuing education credit offerings
And much more!
Local conferences like this allow us to share ideas and learn from one another to make the best use of our Cerner modules.
