Alberta Chapter Virtual LinkUp: Let's talk bout how models of care will be sustained in the future of healthcare in Alberta

  • March 27, 2023
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (MDT)
  • Zoom Meeting


Registration is closed

While virtual care has been operational in Alberta for over 25 years, the Covid-19 pandemic acted as a catalyst to bring this care model to the forefront. Within a couple of short weeks in March 2020, virtual encounters became the norm for ambulatory care shifting from <5% to over 70%. Multiple models of virtual care in development suddenly were propelled into action, both from public and private sectors. In addition to creating opportunities for access, some unintended consequences also emerged.  

Let’s discuss some of the successes of virtual care in Alberta, as well as some of the challenges, and provide a discussion platform on how these models of care will be sustainable in the future of healthcare in this province.

Discussion Topics:

  1. What successes have you encountered in implementing virtual care in your organization/sector? What are the major challenges you are now trying to solve?
  2. What training and supports have you put in place for healthcare providers? For patients? What needs to be developed next to advance digital health literacy for users of virtual care?
  3. What changes have you implemented to embed virtual care in the broader workflow for care delivery? What elements have been standardized across clinical settings?
  4. How have you addressed privacy and security as part of your virtual care program?
  5. How are you measuring progress and what metrics are used to report on program success?

Moderated by:

Chris CarlsonCIO and Product Executive at Brightsquid
