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.

MOSH

Mobile Outreach Street Health (MOSH) was established in 2007 and provides accessible primary health care services to people who are experiencing homelessness, insecurely housed, street involved and underserved in our community.

TELUS Health for Good™

Since 2014, TELUS Health for Good has been helping to remove many of the barriers Canadians living on the streets face in receiving medical care and reconnecting thousands of patients to the public healthcare system. Mobile Health Clinics, powered by TELUS Health, were originally inspired by the work being done by Doctors of The World. The Mobile Health Clinics powered by TELUS Health, provide essential primary medical care, including electronic medical records, generating over 20,000 patient visits since the program’s inception. Today, through numerous partnerships, volunteers, and the power of technology, TELUS Health for Good is an efficient and innovative mobile healthcare delivery tool to reach communities in need by bringing healthcare directly to the people that need it most. With TELUS’ $10M commitment to the Health for Good program, we are working towards the goal that all Canadians should have access to healthcare, regardless of their socio-economic status.
