To help keep British Columbia’s roads safe, RoadSafetyBC assesses the medical fitness of drivers and decides about licensing through the Driver Medical Fitness (DMF) program. The Driver Medical Fitness Transformation project will deliver a complete digital enhancement of the current DMF Program, including a new case management system and three portals (i.e. Medical Practitioners, Drivers, Partner).

RoadSafetyBC is developing a driver portal. The portal allows drivers who register to self-serve many of their information requests about their DMF case history, including retrieving previously issued correspondence and viewing lists of outstanding submission requirements.

RoadSafetyBC is seeking feedback from driver’s who would require a Driver’s Medical Examination Report who would be interested in providing feedback of the driver portal features and functionality.

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.
