K-Net team works with Hydro One and SSHA to support First Nation health connections

Meetings on Tuesday, Aug 28, with representatives from Hydro One Telecom in the morning and then with Smart Systems for Health Agency (SSHA - www.ssha.on.ca) in the afternoon helped to identify a strategy for Ontario First Nations to begin exploring ways to access SSHA secure health applications.

Penny Carpenter, K-Net's Business Manager and Brian Beaton, K-Net Coordinator, met with the people involved in setting up these network connections and who help decide how and when these connections will be established. Carl Seibel, FedNor's Telecom Officer, joined both meeting via telephone.
