Motivated by COVID-19, midwives have given birth to new telehealth services. Using Zoom to link to moms at home, they’ve continued to provide breastfeeding support and answer questions.
At first, telehealth seemed like a distant dream. But when COVID-19 hit, the CIUSSS and the JGH made telehealth a part of daily life.
By completing the Daily Coronavirus Survey, members of the public will provide CIUSSS West-Central Montreal with digital data that will help predict potential hotspots and improve the allocation of resources.
Health care and social services are being improved by balancing innovative digital technology with an individual’s need for compassion and respect, Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg, President and CEO of CIUSSS West-Central Montreal, said at the healthcare network’s Public Information Meeting.
Dr. Justin Cross has been appointed Chief Digital Health Officer, the first to hold this position in CIUSSS West-Central Montreal. He will plan the network’s bold digital strategy and will implement new technology to improve quality and convenience for users and staff.
