Health Workforce Innovations in Response to the COVID Pandemic
COVID-19 MyMBT Messaging Platform
New methods of care need to be implemented during the pandemic to reduce exposure of patients and providers and maintain continuity of care even if services can't be offered in person for everyone.
MyMBT Messaging is a messaging platform that allows health care providers to securely communicate using a “text” like functionality and is approved for transmission of clinical information. It is currently being used by over 1,000 Manitoba providers.
With support from Shared Health Clinical Leadership, MyMBT Messaging (powered by Imprivata Cortext) is being made available to all Manitoba physicians for urgent and clinically sensitive messaging including provider to provider communications related to COVID-19.
Digital Health has already enabled MyMBT Messaging for most physicians that are already on the Digital Health network. You will receive an email with instructions on how to install and use MyMBT Messaging on your personal device if you fall in that category. This will occur over the next week.
