Featured Tools & Projects from Our Members

The ePRO tool, developed in Canada, provides an opportunity for both individuals with complex care needs and their primary care provider to collaboratively discuss and set goals for monitoring. Adopting goal-oriented care approaches can support persons experiencing complex care challenges, and better support coordination and care continuity.

The electronic Patient Reported Outcome (ePRO) tool has been designed to develop and monitor SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-Based) goals and health outcomes. The technology has been developed in collaboration with individuals with complex care needs, their caregivers, and primary care providers. The ePRO tool is available on two platforms: a mobile app available on smartphones and an online desktop portal.

The CLEVER tool, developed in Belgium, uses a narrative approach to create goals within primary care. The tool aims to create goals that are based on meaningful everyday activities in a real-life situation. CLEVER is intended for people with chronic conditions, social problems or multimorbidity. 

CLEVER was developed by an interdisciplinary team with the intent of defining goals according to an individual's: Context, Life-narrative, Engagement, Values, Emotions and Relevance.  

The Digital Bridge is a Canadian research project that will integrate two tested platforms: the Care Connector and ePRO technology solutions.

Digital health technologies can play an important role in improving person-centred communication across clinical settings and clinicians. This aim of this research project is to develop and test a Digital Bridge by connecting communication technologies already in use in hospital and primary care/community settings to improve communication between providers in hospital and in primary care, patients and family caregivers from admission to 6 months post-discharge.

Goal Finder is a Belgian tool designed to help people living with chronic illness organize their care in a meaningful and targeted way. 

The tool is intended to help people identify the areas in life that matter to them. The process of working through the tool also intends to result in well-targeted care, gain insight on a person's life, empower individuals, and create meaningful conversation between people living with chronic illness and their providers.
