Recent Accomplishments:
  • Designed and implemented a Remote Patient Monitoring project to monitor patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder(COPD) & Congestive Heart Failure(CHF) with the aid of a Canada Health Infoway Grant. To date over 1000 patients have been on the program with evaluation results showing increased self-management, better quality of life while reducing the need for acute care interventions. This project is one of the few in Canada to be moved to sustainability from a pilot project.
  • Led a team that redesigned Primary Care Delivery on the Bonavista Peninsula of NL. The redesign included a shift from institutional delivery of primary care to a patient centric approach with healthcare delivered by a multidisciplinary team. The redesign included technology enablers such as EMR, Telehealth, etc that connected patients from the remoteness of NL to specialists in St. John’s, NL. To date, evaluation results are showing reduction in ED visits, increased patient and provider satisfaction while shift from a disease burden model of care to a population health approach.
