TORONTO, May 2, 2017 /CNW/ - QoC Health announced today that it has been awarded a contract to deploy its award-winning patient engagement platform with the Return to Duty (RTD) Program at the Department of National Defense. This platform will be used to support ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members in their recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration. To accomplish this, the platform will help provide incentive to progress through the RTD program, monitor this progress, and share information with RTD Coordinators and Unit RTD Representatives.
The solution will incorporate design elements recommended by ill and injured CAF members, who will be engaged through the deployment and test phases. Features of the RTD platform will include coordinated RTD plans, progress monitoring, social support, educational content, and experience feedback collection. "This platform solution represents a unique opportunity for ill and injured CAF members to be better connected to their RTD program support network," said Captain (Navy) Marie-France Langlois, Director Casualty Support Management. "It also represents a technological step forward in how we care for our own."
"We are humbled by the opportunity offered by the government's BCIP program to promote more stable recovery, rehabilitation, and integration for its ill and injured CAF members," says Raymond Shih, President and Co-Founder of QoC Health. "Being selected for such an important project demonstrates the maturity, scalability, and privacy and security standards of the QoC Health platform."
The contract was awarded through the Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP).
