Healthcare 101’s first module: My Healthcare System

We are thrilled to announce that Healthcare 101 soft launched on October 30th, 2017 at the Dream It, Achieve It Together -Quality and Safety Summit 2017!

Patty Wickson, Healthcare 101’s project manager, invited visitors to the Strategic Clinical Network’s™ booth at this year’s Quality and Safety Summit to view My Healthcare System on her iPad and distributed flyers and bookmarks about Healthcare 101 that she had prepared for this launch. We were pleased that senior leaders in Alberta Health Services showed interest in the module and in learning more about our concept.

Last minute preparations for our launch entailed coordination across three organizations’ technical platforms to be ready for public viewing. IMAGINE Citizens Collaborating for Health, the writer from Health Quality Council of Alberta, and the content and user experience web teams from MyHealth Alberta collaborated to successfully launch the first module of this course for Albertans. On behalf of our Healthcare 101 co-chairs Tracy and Troy and with the incredible support from IMAGINE, I’d like to send a big thank you to all the citizens who volunteered their time and staff across all of the partner organizations who worked so diligently to help this dream become real.

A great deal of helpful feedback has already come in, ranging from finding the inevitable typos we missed, to including sound/voice-over for better accessibility of the module.

You can get involved too! Take the course, give us your feedback and share the link with your friends, family and community.
