TORONTO, ON (June 23, 2021) – Bayshore HealthCare (Bayshore) is proud to announce the launch of the Bayshore Digital Experience Platform (Bayshore DXP) designed to accelerate the shift from hospital to patient-centered home health care in Canada.
Bayshore DXP is a launch pad to support the evolution of a suite of digital home health care services that will enhance the experience for patients, caregivers and frontline workers. It also enables Bayshore to partner with healthcare organizations and industry stakeholders across Canada on innovative digital initiatives by supporting ease of integration.
Bayshore DXP is the result of a three-year strategic investment initiative led by a team of innovative digital architects who are part of Bayshore Digital. Using Human-Centered Service Design principles, the Bayshore Digital team works closely with patients and caregivers to design digital health care solutions with world-class patient experiences.
“We believe by leveraging over 50 years of community health care experience and engaging with patients and caregivers using our services in designing solutions, we will create significant value for both the person receiving care and for the larger health care system in the post-pandemic world,” said Kevin Webster, Chief Operating Officer at Bayshore.
Each year, Bayshore’s 14,500 health care professionals deliver virtual and in-person community care to more than 350,000 patients. With the launch of its new digital platform, Bayshore is best-positioned to improve health outcomes and provide comprehensive solutions for seniors and those living with chronic diseases in communities across the country.
“Bayshore DXP is a scalable future-facing platform built on the Amazon Web Services cloud. The open architecture ensures Bayshore, Canada’s leading national integrated health care service organization will be at the intersection of care and technology as health care transforms,” said Webster.
Bayshore Digital team is currently preparing to rollout several digital products, including virtual care and remote patient monitoring that have been tested and scaled during COVID-19 given the exponential growth in non-contact care beyond the walls of hospitals.
The intersection of health care services and digital technologies in communities across Canada presents an opportunity to transform healthcare and ensure a sustainable future for our publicly-funded system.
