My name is Emma Torres, and I am writing to learn more about Canada’s home telehealth programs for chronic disease patients.
As an undergraduate student interning at Maine Medical Center’s Neuroscience institute (USA) where I have spent two summers developing a TeleNeurology program, I am very interested in applying for a national fellowship that will enable me to investigate an at-home telehealth program in Vancouver for the 2019-2020 academic year. Ideally, I would like to conduct a retrospective cohort study evaluating health outcomes for chronic disease patients using at-home telemonitoring services versus in-person consultations.
Is there anyone at UBC who would be a good resource for me (names and email addresses)? I am hoping to learn more about the chronic disease telehealth program and get advice refining my research question to best fit the country’s needs.
