The Open Collaboration Initiative™ (OCI) brings together local, regional, provincial and national healthcare organizations across Canada and connects them to facilitate the exchange of training material and learning records. By linking their learning management systems, these healthcare organizations can: 

  • Share training material with each other, for free or a fee 
  • Exchange learning records and proof of completion electronically 
  • Monetize their courses 
The OCI connects some of Canada’s largest research and teaching hospitals to hundreds of smaller hospitals, healthcare associations, primary care and community care providers.
