NECHC Mobile Health Clinic
The NECHC Mobile Health Clinic, made possible by the contribution of the TELUS Health for Good™ program, expands upon the important work MOSH has been doing over the years, bringing primary healthcare directly to people in need throughout Halifax, since 2009. This specially-equipped clinic on wheels provides essential primary medical and mental health care, directly to underserved citizens in Halifax. It is equipped with TELUS Health’s electronic medical record (EMR) technology and TELUS LTE Wi-Fi network technology.
Skilled practitioners are able to collect and store health data, examine results over time, and provide better continuity of care to patients who previously had undocumented medical histories. The medical clinic is divided into two main areas: one for patient reception and mental health care and a second more spacious area with an examination table and a physician/nursing workstation.
