Taking SickKids Mobile

Taking SickKids Mobile is an initiative of the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) that explores the use of mobile technologies for enhancing patient care. It includes six sub-projects, three of which relate to improving current patient care processes and three focus on making existing services more effective and easier to use. The reach of these sub-projects ranges from local to global – from supporting children and their parents in self-monitoring post-operative pain and accessing ‘in-the moment’ pain management strategies using a mobile device to enabling anyone around the globe to own and manage their health information on their mobile phone. The project creates a synergy between rigorous academic knowledge and practices brought by student interns from reputed universities and industry know-how of current advancements in the mobile technology field brought by industry partners. Outcomes from this project will also guide the hospital in extending the use of mobile technologies to other areas.
