The Cowichan Tribes are a First Nation living on Vancouver Island. In an effort to improve the delivery of health care in their community, they created an electronic medical records system that is now used by First Nations across the country. The system honours their indigenous teachings and increases control of their health data, but it also comes with challenges. The first is making sure data is always available so medical professionals can diagnose and treat people efficiently and effectively. The second challenge is maintaining compliance with Canada’s data-privacy law.

The solution to these challenges combined three key offerings:

  • Veeam Backup & Replication
  • Clear Concepts’ Managed Services
  • ThinkOn’s Secure, Scalable Cloud

The results consisted of:

  • Improving health and wellness outcomes for First Nations
  • Preserves generations of medical data for future diagnoses
  • Boosts efforts to recruit additional health care professionals
