[Hong Kong] The Sham Shui Po District Health Centre’s (SSPDHC) health advocacy website and their Health is CORE app launched a major update on 16 Dec. Members can now sync their health data including blood pressure, glucose, oxygen saturation level, body temperature and BMI across the web portal, app and kiosks at the centre. Members can also allow access from the Apple or Google health app to keep a centralised record in their membership account. New e-Learning Courses and live chats are available through the web portal or app, and a comprehensive CMS is available for SSPDHC staff to manage the platform for their members and professional practitioners.
Another new function is the ability for members to register for programmes held by SSPDHC online, regardless of if they are accessing through the website or utilizing the mobile app. They can see the remaining quota and apply accordingly. Should the programme have excess registrations, the CMS system will notify SSPDHC staff to do the random draw, and the system will automatically send confirmation notifications to the members who were drawn. On the programme activity day, members can check in with the app by scanning the QR code at venue or pressing the button in the app. They can also apply for leave of absence if they cannot attend. All these activity records can be checked in the member’s web portal or mobile app.
After the update, members can even schedule telehealth consultations through the web portal or mobile app, including Nursing Service, Social Service/Counselling, Dietetic Service and Pharmacy Service. The consultation session will be done through a video call, members just need to click through the link provided by SSPDHC staff, and the consultation can be done through a web browser or the in-app browser. Group discussions can also be arranged by SSPDHC staff for the members. Once the discussion is scheduled and confirmed, members will receive the app notifications accordingly.
In addition, members can use the new carer management tool within the app. Members can add a carer by scanning their QR code, and once the relationship has been established, the carer will be able to see the dependent’s health data and programmes application records, or schedule telehealth consultations, etc. Even non-DHC members can be registered as the carer. All non-DHC members will receive a SMS invitation to download the app and create an account.
