Purpose

Our short-term goals have shifted in March 2020 to help our region battle the COVID-19 outbreak effectively. We have been working on PrimaryON's tools steadily since the spring of 2019. This work hit an inflection point in early January with the advent of the outbreak of COVID-19 abroad.  Now, as we see our concerns about the need for a tool like PrimaryON.ca realized, we are more motivated than ever and in a position to help out.

We are rebranding from FHGTree.com to PrimaryON.ca and opening up content brokerage and assistance to all PEM models and professions to facilitate this process.

Our pre-COVID-19 goals have been and will continue to be...

- Provide a representative organization for physicians who practice in FFS, FHG & CCM PEMs.
- Achieve a unified voice for FFS, FHG & CCM physicians.
- Aim for inclusivity in the current Primary Care ecosystem.
- Aim to procure access to services that are currently unavailable to our patients through collaboration with local health organizations.

Approach

Identify and help provide solutions to the internal and external barriers that have historically limited the ability of FFS, FHG and CCM doctors in being able to actively engage in primary care planning, coordination and delivery.

Lead Programmer - FHG Physician

I am a FHG physician who looks after elderly patients as my primary practice focus. My practice is located in South Etobicoke.

I am the lead programmer of the software that runs this website.

I was formerly the CTO for CHIMB.ca Prior to joining the CHI team I had already launched the website tech that runs TREKK.ca for the PERC (Pediatric Emergency Research Canada) as part of an NCE grant and is currently the lead programmer on the TREKK.ca project as well. I also am the lead programmer for the PERN-Global.com and PERC-Canada.ca and collaborate with an increasing number of medical clients internationally, all in the public sector.

 

My main conviction is that "Information is a medical device" and I view my work in knowledge translation using IT tools as a natural complement to my medical practice. My intention is to help EBM communities of practice deliver better care to their patients by facilitating their organization and collaborative activities.
