Workshop Informatique Santé 2022
The Provincial Virtual Care Platform:
An opportunity to build the future of digital health together.
Symposium Informatique Santé 2022
Digital technology at the heart of the practice
Workshop 1.2 | The Maskoutaine Room | 11 h 00
Since its beginning, Akinox has been committed to putting the patient at the center of health care services. For over
10 years, Akinox's innovative and proven integrated technology has enabled public, and private healthcare organizations to modernize, and transform their care processes to maximize quality and value, while improving the entire patient care experience.
Based on its experience, Akinox offers a wide range of technological solutions for various healthcare services, ranging from virtual care to the automation of care processes and pathways, to Early Child Disability Screening, to the technological response to pandemics, and much more.
Akinox was a pioneer in virtual care in Canada, even before the importance of virtual care was highlighted by the pandemic. Akinox was already working on virtual care projects in 2010 to make care accessible to the populations of Quebec's Far North. Through its collaboration with the CUSM and the RIUSS McGill, Akinox was able to deploy its solution in more than 40% of Quebec's territory. This successful pilot project, and unique expertise were recognized in 2021 through the awarding of the provincial telehealth/care trajectory call for tenders. This priority project for access to care aims to reduce delays in access to specialized care.
In view of the upcoming deployment of the provincial virtual care platform, announced by the Ministry of Health and Social Services on June 20, 2022, and to continue to put technology at the service of health, Akinox is collaborating initially with the Quebec Association of Medical Specialists in Dermatology. The goal of this collaboration is to significantly reduce wait times to consult healthcare professionals specialized in dermatology. All of this is in keeping with Akinox's vision of a healthy and inclusive world, where the overall health of the human being is truly at the center of the services offered by healthcare organizations.
Innovation, digitalization, and collaboration are among the key pillars for improving healthcare, as well as the patient and clinician experience. Technology platforms and solutions used by different frontline workers can make a real difference in enabling clinicians to be more efficient, reduce manual and redundant tasks, and give more importance to human tasks with real added value.
It is therefore important to have a good understanding of the current frontline issues. This workshop will consist of two parts: First, we will look together at the provincial platform, its scope and anticipated impacts, and then discuss the various opportunities to facilitate its deployment, adoption, and use in the frontline. The main objective of this workshop is to exchange together to build a visionary, innovative and accessible digital platform that will meet the needs of both patients and all healthcare professionals.
