UpPatient is the TELUS Collaborative Health Record (CHR) patient app. Using this app, your patients can connect to any CHR clinic they're registered at, provided the clinic is configured with this offering.
Through the UpPatient app, patients can easily join their virtual visits and communicate with their provider through video, audio and chat messaging. During a virtual visit, a patient can receive a task from the provider. For example, they can be assigned a Qnaire to complete. These tasks can be completed during or after the visit.
📌 Note: If a patient does not have access to the UpPatient app, they can still attend a virtual visit from any device using the email/SMS link they receive.
Through the UpPatient app, patients can:
Complete any unfinished assigned Qnaires
📌 Note: Qnaires that are directly sent from the patient chart cannot be viewed or completed using the patient app.
Be notified when its time for a virtual visit (with a join link)
