At TELUS Health Solutions, we believe the innovative use of technology can improve the healthcare experience for health providers and patients alike. Technology has an important role in helping to reduce costs, stem the prevalence of chronic diseases, and empower consumers to take a greater role in the management of their health. From internet access and wireless devices, new technologies are improving the way health information can be used and shared across the healthcare system to help achieve these critical outcomes.

Now, TELUS Health Solutions offers a suite of Consumer Health applications that leverage this readily available technology. More than just education and information, this next generation of services will allow individuals to become more involved in the management of their health, giving them anytime, anywhere access to health information. These tools also foster greater collaboration and communication among the healthcare team, including physicians, nurses and other care providers.

this service, the first of its kind in Canada, lets consumers manage and store their personal health information and have access to value-added applications such as personal health record, chronic disease management, pediatric care and wellness products that will allow Canadians to improve the management of their personal and family health.
an online digital record that allows consumers to create a complete and consolidated view of their personal health history.

Once created, a personal health record is available through the internet anywhere, anytime and can be managed in TELUS Health Space.
a personalized program of text messages that are automatically sent to participants’ mobile phones to help them stop smoking.

TELUS Health - Electronic Health Records

We believe the solution lies in the creation of standard Electronic Health Records that employ information and communications technology to facilitate the capture and transfer of patient information electronically. Without access to timely and accurate patient information life-threatening mistakes can be made, costly and unnecessary tests may be ordered, and overall quality of care can be compromised.
