Innovations: Patient Access
Innovations that improve patient access to healthcare services
A private health clinic uses methods such as telehealth and dictation in order to provide quick turn-arounds for lab and ultrasound results.
Connections to community and patients deepened by physician’s dedication to visiting aging patients closer to home.
Physicians have 15-minute appointment times which gives more time to address the patient’s issues.
A First Nation’s Band provides financial support to families in need of medical care outside of their community.
Community hosts outreach events to educate people on blood pressure and heart health in order to battle chronic disease.
