BC Emergency Network Discovery, Branding, and Online Tool Development
In our signature discovery process, we conducted a scoping literature review, and collected data via our custom-built surveys, focus groups, site visits, and key informant interviews. After gathering and analyzing information from more than 300 physicians, we produced a detailed discovery report with recommendations to the network leads, ensuring that we developed and designed a brand and online interactive tool that was informed by evidence and shaped by the users.
We built the BC EMN’s brand and an exceptionally functional, user-friendly custom management system (CMS) website that includes a private member area, member directory, member discussions, blogs, podcasts, provincial emergency medicine course listings and calendar, clinical point-of-care resources, and various other integrated features and highlights of emergency medicine in the province. The website launched in September 2017, and we have continued to partner with the BC EMN to provide communications support and design, and the development of additional features.
stakeholders were engaged.
75% of all emergency medicine doctors practicing in B.C. are on the network website.
