ADVANCED CREATES OPEN FORUM AND DIGITALLY-INTERACTIVE MEETING SPACES FOR HEALTH COUNCIL OF CANADA TO SUPPORT NATIONAL MINISTERS OF HEALTH
ABOUT THE HEALTH COUNCIL OF CANADA
Established by Canada’s Prime Minister and Provincial and Territorial Premiers, the Health Council of Canada (the Council) focuses on 2 agreements referred to as “the Accords”: the 2003 First Ministers’ Accord on Health Care Renewal; and the 2004 10-Year Plan to Strengthen Health Care. The Health Council’s “corporate Members” are comprised of the Ministers of Health within the 12 jurisdictions that signed the Accords.
The Council required an expert audiovisual partner to design and install an integrated AV solution for the main boardroom and conference rooms. The solutions provider needed to create and install meeting spaces that would enhance collaboration across the multi-room project and within the organization itself.
THE ADVANCED SOLUTION
Advanced worked closely with the Council to create collaborative meeting spaces and presentation environments that allowed staff to communicate and share ideas in an interactive way. By adding collaborative technology to the boardrooms and meeting rooms, Advanced provided the Council with a solution that, effectively, enhanced all meeting spaces across the organization promoting open forum discussion, brainstorming and increased interaction, idea and information sharing.
The main boardroom featured a projection system, motorized screen, full Crestron room automation and control system and custom-designed furniture and cable routing to handsomely tie together all elements of the hardware. The meeting rooms featured SMARTBoards, projectors, motorized screens, LCD displays, full Crestron control systems, custom-designed furniture and audio reinforcement systems.
The forward-thinking solution created by Advanced improves overall levels of communication and interaction between Council staff and Members, allowing meetings and presentations to be conducted within an open and interactive environment. Advanced also provided ongoing equipment service and maintenance through a support agreement to extend the life of the equipment and ensure it operated optimally on a day-to-day basis and over time.
