Open to Provincial Region, Patient partners across the province
Have you ever wanted to be able to email or text your care provider? Have you ever wished that your provider could text you rather than call you? We are looking for patient partners to review the list of requirements developed by Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) clinical leaders that describe how they want to use clinical digital messaging (CDM) with their patients.
Open to: Patient partners across the province
Lead Organization or DepartmentOffice of Virtual Health, PHSA
AimOur goal is to find vendors who can provide solutions for clinical digital messaging (CDM) that meet the clinical requirements and patient requirements. We will then test the solutions with select programs, evaluate and potentially scale across PHSA. It is important to engage patients at this stage because we have not contacted vendors yet. We need to ensure the patient voice is included in our list of requirements. The patient partner's role is to review our list of requirements and provide feedback and any additional requirements that we might have missed.
Level of EngagementThis opportunity is at the level of consult on the spectrum of engagement. The promise to you is that the health care partner will listen to and acknowledge your ideas and concerns, and provide feedback on how your input affected the decision.
EligibilityIf you have a strong interest in this work but have not yet completed a PVN orientation and volunteer agreement, are unsure if your experience is a good fit or feel another format of engagement would work better with your availability, please contact the engagement leader directly.
- Vacancies: 5
- Patient partner will be asked to review one document and provide feedback by the end of May
ReimbursementNo expenses anticipated
