St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton is seeking a technology solution that can be used to support a virtual physical rehabilitation program for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD), with the ability to expand to Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients in the future, to help improve patient’s quality of life, physical activity, and disease self-management while reducing the risk of hospital readmission and Emergency Department visits. It is important for the technology solution to be integrated with the Epic Health Information System (HIS) as part of this project.
