Doctors’ input on digital and virtual health-related matters is essential to ensuring technology solutions that improve quality and delivery of patient care in BC. Opportunities for doctors to get involved directly and on behalf of Doctors of BC include:

  • Ongoing member engagement:  Doctors of BC regularly calls for members’ input online and in-person through:
    • Meetings and group discussions
    • Focus groups
    • Surveys
    • Online forums and comment boards

    This is a key way in which your collective input informs and influences the policy and positions Doctors of BC uses to advocate with stakeholders on members behalf.

  • Participation at national and provincial health system project tables: Doctors of BC supports and compensates doctors to engage on national and provincial health system projects. Opportunities will be listed here.
  • Committee appointments: Doctors of BC directly appoints and compensates participation of doctor representatives on eight provincial digital and virtual health committees. Representatives are supported to bring forward the Association’s position and policy recommendations on key issues, which are informed by broader doctors’ input from the Doctors of BC membership.  [link to more info]

Digital Health Engagements

How did we seek member input?

Phase 1

Online engagement revisiting pre-pandemic perspectives on optimizing use of EMRs, EHRs, and other digital health technologies and related Ministry of Health priorities.

Phase 2

Online engagement informed by Phase 1 findings; sought more focused input to guide advocacy on the Ministry's development of a provincial EMR strategy. 

Participate in Digital Health

Doctors of BC is committed to ensuring you have a voice in digital health governance and projects.

We are working with the Ministry of Health to review and refresh provincial digital health strategy and develop our own work in the area. Hearing from a broad range of our members across BC is essential to steering this work.

Your input on digital and virtual health-related matters is integral to helping Doctors of BC:

  • Better understand members’ priorities related to digital and virtual health
  • Work to ensure these priorities are considered in the development of digital and virtual health planning and projects
