Mobile iphone-based care strategy app in the Peace

Doctors caring for South Peace emergency patients can now have 24/7 support from critical care specialists with new virtual technology. 

The mobile iphone-based tech is called Critical Outreach and Diagnostic Intervention (CODI) which was developed by BC general practitioners Dr. John Pawlovich and Dr. Don Burke.

This CODI app system is in place in Chetwynd, and Tumbler Ridge, and expected in the future for DC. Physicians providing emergency care can now have additional immediate support during their most stressful and challenging times in the ER.

A grant from the South Peace Health services society with partnership between South Peace Division of Family Practice and Northern Health has provided this opportunity to implement new emergency room technology. 

This will improve patient outcomes by timely consultations and treatment, improved communication, reduced out-of-community transfers, and enhance patient-centred care.
