Smartphone survey for community-based staff: Deadline tomorrow

It’s a brave new world… for smartphone use in VCH community that is.

Work in community and interested in the smartphone strategy?

You’re invited to take a short, 5-minute survey to let us know what smartphone functions and applications might be useful in your clinical practice, as well as what support you might need along the way. You could win one of 25 $10 Starbucks gift cards! Please complete the survey by Friday September 15th for your chance to win!

Do the survey now – Community staff only

We’re making progress! Here are the highlights

  • Eventually, every community-based employee who needs a smartphone (as determined by your manager) will get an Apple iPhone.
  • Those currently without any kind of phone/data combo will get the new data-enabled smartphones first (iPhone 7S). Over time, others with slightly older technology, such as Blackberry, will get upgraded through regular renewal cycles. We know everyone would love a new phone ASAP, but this approach allows us to level the playing field and focus first on the folks who do not have phones with data. (Stay tuned for details on how to check your individual renewal date.)
  • We’ll start distributing the new phones via site coordinators in early October 2017.
  • Regular updates will follow to keep you up-to-date on everything you need to know.
