Seven Oaks Hospital Foundation opened the doors of its new Chronic Disease Innovation Centre on November 17. While the research team has already been in place for more than a year, the team now has a dedicated space to continue with work that focuses largely on the use of data to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of chronic disease identification and treatment. 
The centre is led by three nephrologists who, in addition to conducting research and being affiliated with University of Manitoba’s Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, are part of Manitoba Renal Program though the SOGH Renal Program. Drs. Paul Komenda, Navdeep Tangri and Claudio Rigatto lead a team of 10 staff at the centre.

Much of the research being conducted is kidney health related but the centre expects to expand its scope over time. To learn more about the centre visit changinghealthcaredelivery.ca.
