Shiran is the Vice President of Altum Health and Connected Care at University Health Network.  In this role, Shiran is helping to drive a better experience for patients and providers through his leadership of the Altum Health, Connected Care and International Program teams. With more than 20 years of healthcare experience, Shiran’s expertise lies in leading complex and large-scale transformational programs.

Through these experiences Shiran possesses a comprehensive view of the complex health care system. He uses these experiences to focus on improving patient care and patient outcomes.  Shiran finds great satisfaction in tackling challenging and previously unsolvable industry issues.

His collaborative approach also extends to the development of unique partnerships. In doing so, he assembles strong, inter-disciplinary teams with a broad range of skills, and applies a holistic approach to problem solving, that result in new innovative programs to support care delivery and patient experience.

Shiran chose a career in healthcare as he felt an innate drive for working in a sector that aligns with his values and enables him to give back to the community at large. “All of the great work we do at UHN is patient-centric. With every decision made, we ask how we are improving the patient experience, and improving care outcomes”.

Shiran believes that the patient’s voice must guide all healthcare activities, whether it be at the policy level in his role as President Board Chair of Digital Health Canada, in the academic setting as an Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Toronto, or when planning and implementing transformational programs.
