The CAPCH VISION is a people-centred health system for all. Our MISSION is to promote our vision through research projects, events, and online communities, establishing standards for people-centred healthcare and encouraging collaboration on innovative eHealth research. We believe that a people-centred health system should follow the empowering PRINCIPLES of responsibility, autonomy, informed health management and partnership.
CAPCH brings together academics, healthcare professionals, and patients to deliver working eHealth projects that highlight the benefits of people-centred healthcare. People-centred healthcare has the potential to improve the efficiency and quality of care while lessening the demands on the healthcare system. Every person in the system should be informed of their health status, educated as to their alternative courses of treatment, and responsible for their own wellness. Each person should have a personal Shared Electronic Health Record (SEHR) that they can access and share across providers, enabling speedier test results and collaborative patient care.
