WHAT SOLUTIONS CAN IT MOBILITY BRING TO HEALTH?

Génération d’Idées invites you to reflect on the issues related to the computerization of the health system and its possible impacts on accessibility and quality.

– What place could “health” take on our mobile devices?
– Could we consider opening data?
– What solutions would you like to see appear in order to help you manage your own health and help health workers provide you with more efficient service?

Your conclusions will be presented at the conference of the Quebec Association of Health and Social Services Institutions (AQESSS) on October 9, 2013.

Our mentors for this event:

Mr. Luc Bouchard, Director of Funding, Investments and Information Technology at AQESSS.

François Noël, Mentor of RéseauM, former executive director of Purkinje and former vice-president of Manyeta, two firms specializing in the design of IT solutions in the health sector.

Hope to see you there!

———-

An introduction by Mr. Bouchard and Mr. Noël allowed participants to get a better idea of ​​the current system. Because, it should be noted that very few people understood the issues and no participant, with one exception, was really aware of the current situation of advances in the computerization of the health system in Quebec.

Following these presentations, several concerns were raised by the participants in connection with the delay of Quebec vis-a-vis the international one. In addition to these concerns, there are several points raised which are considered to be of primary importance. Here they are :

Make the health record accessible at all times, both in Canada and internationally
Some participants mentioned the fact that young people are working and traveling more and more internationally. In this context of globalization, it is considered essential that health records can follow this trend.

Don’t cut the human side
Computerization of the health care system shouldn’t cut the person-to-person relationship. It should even help it by offering real-time monitoring tools and by allowing authorities to intervene directly with the patient.

Access to the controlled health record
One of the important points raised by one of the participants concerns access to the health record. Participants felt that some people should not have access to their records, primarily for patients with mental illness. However, several participants remained convinced that the majority of people should be able to access it in a controlled manner as prescribed by law without having to make a special request.

Getting the patient forward
This is one of the main points that has come up on several occasions. The computerization of the system should allow the patient to regain control over his medical follow-up. To be able to be put back at the front and center of the process.

Help with the follow-up of the file
Allow the patient to provide additional information such as his blood sugar level in order to detect any abnormalities by the doctor.

In conclusion, two important points emerged from this discussion: to make the system more transparent so that patients can take back control of their health and to put the patient back at the heart of the health system thanks to these new tools.

Thank you all for your participation!
