PCHI Telehealth Resources

Digital health can be described as the integration of the electronic collection and compilation of health data, decision support tools and analytics with the use of audio, video and other technologies to deliver preventive, diagnostic and treatment services that promote patient and population health.

While technologies to deliver health care through means other than face-to-face contact, such as telemedicine/telehealth, have been around for decades, they have yet to be adopted into routine use by health care systems around the industrialized world. In the last few years there has been an explosion of interest in pursuing digital health strategies in many places.

A goal of the PCHI lab is to create evidence-based resources (educational knowledge translation tools) to train and support rehabilitation professionals (e.g., occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists) in the delivery of care as they adapt their practices to be delivered using telehealth across 30 complementary pediatric and adult healthcare facilities.
