Virtual Visits wins the Patient Care Innovation Team Award at the 2019 CHIA Gala!

Congratulations to our QBIC team on their Patient Care Innovation Award at the Canadian Health Informatics Awards (CHIA) Gala!


The award recognizes a for-profit healthcare ICT company and client team that have successfully implemented a health-IT solution that has positively impacted patient care in innovative ways and honours the private and public sector team effort.


Since VirtualCare went live 12 months ago, 67 primary care providers (PCPs) are registered, and 77% have conducted more than 3 visits with their patients. Patients have requested virtual visits with their PCP for reasons such as medication and prescriptions, to follow up on test results, to address new health issues, and discuss chronic conditions.



“The ability to have a virtual visit with my doctor reduces the need for a 45-minute drive to see my doctor for health concerns that can be dealt with through a virtual visit. My doctor monitors my progress while transitioning medications, without the need for me to visit their office. The virtual care application is easy to use and such a convenient way to get the care I need.” – Patient


Virtual Visits provide an efficient and convenient way for patients to connect with their primary care provider so they can be informed and engaged in their care. It is the ongoing dedication to digital health innovation that makes programs like Virtual Visits a success in our community!


Thank you to everyone for your involvement and continued support to expand digital health!
