Greg’s Story: Digital Health and Continuity of Patient Care

Posted on September 9, 2014 by Jennifer Zelmer

Greg Price was a young man who died in 2012 after spending much of the previous year navigating a disconnected health care system. The Alberta Health Quality Council reviewed Greg’s case and made several recommendations, including how digital health could have helped improve communications among teams in his circle of care and empowered Greg with the information he needed to navigate his health care journey.

Here is Greg’s story.

 

Greg’s father, David Price, and the Alberta Health Quality Council report’s author, Ward Flemons, also shared further details regarding Greg’s journey and the report’s process and findings at the 2014 Advancing Care Symposium.
