Patients & Caregivers Take on Technology Conference

Anna Foat

Anna Foat wants to live in a world where changing the status quo isn’t a wild dream, but an achievable reality.

She’s been in the tech space for 20 years joining RIM in 1999 through 2011, worldwide editor of MobileFirst at IBM and an executive in residence at Communitech. Today she is a board member at Tech Alliance while working at SunLife Financial as a Director in the Digital Transformation Office. She has been a caregiver to her husband who became habituated to opiates after a severe accident abroad. Ultimately he developed his own taper plan to wean himself off a high dose of narcotics.

It was this gap in the health system that made her an advocate and work towards system transformation and improvement.
