iCHIP application a North American first for blood disorder patients (St. Paul’s Hospital)
Empowering patients, improving care and support, and enhancing quality of life; that’s what the newly launched iCHIP application will deliver to patients across the province of BC.
The BC Provincial Blood Coordinating Office (PBCO) launched the Inherited Coagulopathy and Hemoglobinopathy Information Portal (iCHIP) on July 23, 2014 in Vancouver. iCHIP is the first web-based, secure application of its kind in North America. It helps track patients with rare, chronic and life-threatening conditions like hemophilia and sickle cell disease electronically through two components—a Patient Home Module and a Clinical Module.
iCHIP was developed in collaboration with the two BC Inherited Bleeding and Red Cell Disorders (IBRCD) program sites, Pediatric at BC Children’s Hospital and Adult at St. Paul’s Hospital, to support the unique clinical care needs of patients with blood disorders.
