“Spindle has a special ability to translate a system-level problem into a smart and simple plan of action. This was most apparent in their management of planning for the future developments in big data for health in Ontario. They organised a far-reaching discussion that involved all of the main players, which led to a number of proposals, including the development of a health data safe haven in Ontario.”
DR. SAMANTHA LISCIO
Senior Vice President, Enterprise Planning and Reporting, eHealth Ontario
“In my experience participating as an advisory committee member on one of Spindle’s projects, they were able to deeply engage a number of critical stakeholders in the Ontario health innovation space. They did this in part by composing and leading relevant discussions that spoke to everyone’s priorities and also by drawing out and framing the issues in written documents that were accessible to everyone”
