UBC Student Health Services won two awards for innovative e-solutions in patient care from Canada Health Infoway. UBC was awarded a first-place Trailblazer Award for its e-scheduling system, which allows students to book, change and cancel appointments online.
UBC was also awarded a second-place Trailblazer Award for facilitating patient access to health information. Students can access test results, support, and emails from their physicians online.
Student Health Services will receive $50,000 with the awards, which will be used to create a mobile application that fully integrates with the current software and allows instant use of the system from virtually anywhere.
