Digitization of Clinical Services

For more than 60 years, two formidable research units within CAIHR, the TMRU and SCU, have amassed a significant amount of critical malnutrition and sickle cell disease related patient data, which over the years, have contributed pivotal information and evidence to support government health policies and communicated major lessons in disease management to the medical literature worldwide. For the most part, the data is captured on paper and the resultant issues include the significant risk of loss due to physical storage and environmental conditions, as well as the inability to locate and retrieve information quickly and efficiently. Digitization is a necessary next step in upgrading how we function in a world that is moving more and more online as the Covid-19 pandemic rages on. As health-care becomes increasingly evidence-based, data protection is important, for clinical and also research purposes.

CAIHR invites you to partner with us to make this digital revolution of our clinical services a reality.
