Department of Health
The Innovation and eHealth branch of the Department of Health is responsible for overall alignment and integration of innovative eHealth and Digital Health services to achieve optimal health system performance. Digital Health solutions focus on quality care for all citizens of New Brunswick and promote clinical value in the delivery of eHealth solutions to clinicians and administrators within the health system. The vision is to create clinical value through digital health solutions and improve access to care by providing standardized, up to date and relevant health information.
The current COVID-19 pandemic has served to intensify the ongoing pressure on New Brunswick health services. The ongoing impact of this outbreak is felt most intensely by the most vulnerable populations in the province; Citizens with autoimmune disorders, mental health conditions (such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Anxiety disorders, Bipolar, schizophrenia, substance dependency & additions), geriatric patients, etc. Given the current physical distancing restrictions, as well as the increased risk associated with these conditions, it can be challenging for these citizens to seek out and receive health care. The Innovation & eHealth branch has identified an opportunity to support patient care through the implementation of Connected Care Pathways, including Virtual Care.
Connected Care Pathways expand beyond current face-to-face modalities of delivering healthcare by leveraging digital communication solutions such as videoconferencing, teleconferencing, and secure text-based communication.
The implementation of Connected Care Pathways will serve to provide vulnerable New Brunswickers with dependable public health care and improve their quality of life during this stressful time. It will also serve as exemplar to the opportunity Connected Care presents in the establishment of a citizen centric healthcare model supporting vibrant, sustainable communities through access to clinically valuable care.
These initiatives support the Department of Health Strategy, as well as the objectives of the Digital New Brunswick Strategy to support and enable citizen access to health information in the most efficient and effective manner using digital health solutions and services.
