THE COMMUNITY REMOTE MONITORING PROGRAM
We are pleased to offer you the aTouchAway Application (app) as part of the Burlington Ontario Health Team Community Remote Patient Monitoring Program.
aTouchAway allows you to connect with your healthcare team Monday to Friday 08:00 to 16:00 and on weekends 08:00 to noon in order to ask questions or receive reminders. Each day you will be asked to monitor your symptoms and vital sign readings – for example, blood pressure or temperature. These readings will be sent to your healthcare team within the application. If there are any changes, a healthcare professional will call you using the video / call feature. Throughout the program you will also receive surveys. We would appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete the surveys to tell us about your experience. We value your input as it will help make the program better.
The Burlington Ontario Health Team takes your privacy and its obligations under the Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004 very seriously. aTouchAway supports secure and confidential communication between you, your family/other caregivers, and your healthcare team. Access to aTouchAway is linked directly to your device and cannot be transferred to another device. Only people you have identified as contacts on your consent form will have access to join you on this Program. In order to safeguard patient privacy and confidentiality, if you suspect your tablet is lost or missing, please notify the central intake team at 289-208-9619.
