Get Real Health Develops Canadian Pilot Program
Get Real Health furthered its mission of empowering patients across the globe, by developing a pilot program for eHealth Saskatchewan targeted at improving access to health data for residents of the province, giving patients a real-time view of their overall health.
The solution, Citizen Health Information Portal (CHIP), was launched in January with the goal of gaining real-world feedback from roughly 1,000 residents over a six-month trial period. CHIP offers Saskatchewanians one place to store health data, including lab results, profile information, immunizations, and pharmacy and hospital visit histories.
CHIP, using TELUS Health’s Personal Health Record, powered by Get Real Health’s InstantPHR® patient engagement platform, integrates with Saskatchewan’s existing pharmaceutical, chronic disease management and general health data repositories. “CHIP will enable Saskatchewanians to securely see, share and manage their health data all in one place. It’s a huge step toward realizing Saskatchewan’s vision of connected care, engaged patients and better health outcomes for all its residents,” says Robin Wiener, president and founding partner of Get Real Health.
