 Patient care today relies heavily on patients and caregivers coordinating their own records, leading to difficulties building comprehensive and accurate health records. Digitizing the patient journey, from using electronic records to tracking patients' health with portable sensors, are now conceivable to curate and accurately record health information and improve self-management. To begin transforming healthcare using technology-enabled healthcare approaches, commonly referred to as virtual or digital health, we need rigorous interdisciplinary research.

Virtual Innovative health Strategies through Interdisciplinary co-Operative Network (VISION) aims to advance research to develop and evaluate virtual and digital interventions in healthcare. With experienced faculty members, trainees, and research users (eg. patients, caregivers, policy makers, healthcare professionals, industry) from health, social, and natural sciences, together we can work to digitize healthcare.

Through this MSFHR grant, we will bring VISION members and experts outside of BC together to explore key areas of interdisciplinary research in digital health and convene a patient and caregiver advisory committee to guide our patient-oriented research path forward.
