The purpose of this study is to understand what patients think about the digitization of patient health information (e.g. lab results, physician notes) in the emergency room. The results of this study will guide the development of digital tools that empower patients and their care providers to meaningfully use the medical information collected during their emergency room visits.

Who can participate?

Adults (19 years or older) who have received care at a BC emergency department within the last 5 years.

What is involved?

You can participate by completing an anonymous online questionnaire. The questionnaire takes 15 minutes to complete. It asks about your experience in the emergency department as well as how you believe the digitization of patient medical information can or should affect care.

The question I like to ask health care employees is ‘Who is this for?’ and ‘Do we have the right people at the table?’ As a health care employee, I see how easy it is to fall into doing for, rather than doing with patients. The voices of the patient, family and caregiver are essential to ensure the patient is central to the direction and focus of the work being done.
