Provide expertise and innovative solutions for public health information systems in supporting the delivery of public health programs across provincial and territorial jurisdictions resulting in better health outcomes.
Work collaboratively with the Ministry of Health and the regional health authorities to fully implement a provincial vaccine inventory system, an immunization registry and a communicable disease and outbreak management system:
- vaccine inventory system – to ensure safe distribution and supply management of provincial vaccine stock to vaccine providers in BC
- immunization registry – to enable provincial immunization coverage surveillance, identification of under-immunized children and students, immunization decision support, school-based clinics, physician access to records and provincial readiness to manage outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases
- communicable disease and outbreak management system – to enable provincial and regional communicable disease reporting, management and surveillance as well as identification, tracking and management of outbreaks
The nature, scope and diversity of our work requires strong collaboration with the BC regional, Yukon and First Nations health authorities in order to support their public health user support teams.
We also work closely on system management, contracts, funding and data standards with the BC Ministry of Health, PHSA and many government organizations, committees, agencies and working groups across Canada.
