Opal: your child’s medical info is just a click away

Opal: your child’s medical info is just a click away

In a Quebec first, Opal puts knowledge and power in the hands of parents, thanks to you.

We know that preparing for a child’s doctor appointment can be nerve-wracking at the best of times. For parents of children with serious or chronic ailments, it is particularly challenging. They have an enormous amount to manage including their child’s appointments, treatment plans, medications, clinical notes, and lab test results.

To make it easier for parents to track, share and understand their child's medical history, the Children’s is launching a pilot project to deploy the award-winning Opal patient portal app (opalmedapps.com) in its Nephrology Department.

The Opal app, which is accessible by smartphone, tablet and computer, was designed to make communication and information sharing easy and secure. Made possible by your donations, the app will simplify and streamline the health care journey for our patients.

Thank you for helping us find unexpected ways to heal!
