And don’t worry … Sarah will be back! She’s deep into the audio of TeamUP! Season 5, which is shaping up to be our biggest season of TeamUP! yet.

What is Team Up! Team-based primary and community care in action?

A podcast that brings together primary care providers, healthcare planners, patients, innovators and others to talk about the changes that are happening in primary care in British Columbia.

Morgan: In this age of AI apps, are
you wondering how you can just use

your current technology a little bit
better in your primary care team?

Yeah, me too.

I'm putting out this mini season
technology for teams on my own.

Now, Sarah's very much
engaged in Team Up still.

Don't worry.

In fact, she's out in the field right
now as you're listening to this.

She has her big headphones on and is
interviewing people for our biggest

and most complex season of team up.


In the meantime though, I'm
gonna share three team bits on

technology for primary care teams.

We've heard from people about some
of the challenges and ideas about how

to use technology better and how it
can help teams work better together

and work with patients better.

So I'm gonna explore three of
those over the next few weeks.

I'm gonna talk about electronic
medical records, which are the

central team repository, the
charts, but it can be so much more.

And there's lots of issues with
EMRs and fragmented access.

So we'll talk about that
in the next episode.

Then we're gonna dive in a little
bit to telehealth, and I think of

telehealth as that synchronous real-time
communication over distance with

patients and in the team environment,
we can do different things with it.

So imagine more than one
provider working together.

also think about more than one
patient working together in group

visits And the last topic I wanna
talk about is patient portals.

And I think about these as that
asynchronous, not real-time

communication or messaging and other
ways to connect with patients and

how patients can connect with a team.

And this can be a great way for
a whole range of team members

to contribute through portals to
improve continuity and capacity.


So please wait patiently for
Sarah's season, which we're

tentatively calling Role Call.

And while you wait, have a
listen to a few team bits on

technology for primary care teams.
