Centre de Coordination de la Télésanté du Ciusss de l’Estrie – CHUS 2016 Telehomecare Service for COPD Clients

In 2016, the Centre de coordination de la télésanté du Centre intégré universitaire de santé et services sociaux de l’Estrie-Centre hospitalier universitaire de Sherbrooke (CCT du CIUSSS de l’Estrie - CHUS) developed a telehomecare (THC) service for users with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The THC-COPD service allows users to self-manage their disease and gives health professionals the ability to monitor the user’s health condition. This preliminary report demonstrates the value of continuing to support the THC-COPD service, as assessment continues using a larger data set in a secondary evaluation report that is underway.
