Monitoring My Care
patients will be asked to take part in the “Monitoring My
Care” (MMC) program. The MMC program is designed to help discharged
patients, and their care team, monitor progress virtually, during recovery at home.
How it works:
On the day of the surgery, patients
participating in the MMC program will receive an email containing a link to a
questionnaire. Once discharged, patients will complete this questionnaire once
a day during their recovery period (7 days).
Depending on the patients’ responses,
they may be asked to call our “Monitoring My Care” nurse
coordinator for further assessment.
The Monitoring My Care (MMC) program is hosted
on our Connected Care Patient Portal. Patients participating in
the MMC program must have an account on the Connected Care Patient
Portal. If you do not have an account, please ask for one when
registering for any appointment at Queensway Carleton Hospital. Our team will
send you an email containing a link to create your account. For security
purposes, these requests must be made in-person. For more information about the
Connected Care Patient Portal, please follow this link: www.qch.on.ca/ConnectedCare
