Is it just me or did the last quarter fly by? It was a busy time for our Evaluation Services team as well – lots of great and interesting evaluations on the go.
Here are a few of the noteworthy reports and activities that were published between April and June 2017.
- 2017 National Survey of Canadian Nurses: Use of Digital Health Technology in Practice: This survey of more than 2100 nurses in Canada sought to understand the current use of electronic record/clinical information systems by nurses in Canada across clinical practice settings.
- Handbook of eHealth Evaluation: An Evidence-based Approach: This handbook, published by the University of Victoria, provides a practical guide on the evaluation of e-health systems for students and individuals who are involved with the planning, design, implementation, use, support and assessment of e-health systems in different healthcare settings.
- Virtual Visits: Infoway surveyed patients, conducted in-depth physician interviews and funded researchers from the University of British Columbia to examine online medical virtual visits in British Columbia to better understand who is using and providing these services, the potential value for patients, and the perceptions of family physicians that use the service.
- Changes in blood pressure among patients in the Ontario Telehomecare programme: An observational longitudinal cohort study: An observational study of over 3,500 patients in Ontario, which was conducted to investigate the changes in blood pressure among patients enrolled in the Ontario Telemedicine Network Telehomecare program between 2012 and 2015. Blood pressure levels were significantly reduced in patients enrolled.
- Dataverse Contributions: Infoway partnered with the University of Victoria to make survey data available for download on the Dataverse Network, an open-source application for publishing, referencing, extracting and analyzing research data.
