We are very encouraged to see our supported Tele-medical care and Medication Guidance Pilot Project reaping one of the Best COVID-10 Global Community Project Award last week!
Speaking at the recent 9th Global Conference of the Alliance of the Healthy Cities, Jim Hoe, Program Director of Sai Kung District Community Centre (“SKDCC”) shared with an international audience the rationale and evaluation findings of this 16-month project.
This project was our recent effort aimed at addressing the challenges rural elderly face to attend General Outpatient Clinic follow-ups under the COVID-19 pandemic. We attempted to test a solid and replicable experience in order to facilitate the long-term development of tele-medicine in Hong Kong through this pilot project to improve the rural elderly’s access to the primary care system and related healthy equity issues. Many congratulations to SKDCC team and all our partners! Our heartfelt thanks to the great support from our researchers and volunteer advisers in the project steering committee. We are very proud of being part of this important journey together, and are exploring how to apply our learnings in the next project phase.
