The Inherited Coagulopathy and Hemoglobinopathy Information Portal (iCHIP) is a BC Provincial Blood Coordinating Office (PBCO) developed application that is used to support patient care and improve care outcomes in the BC Inherited Bleeding and Red Cell Disorders (IBRCD) Services. Using modern technology, iCHIP was launched in 2013 and is a web-based application that allows hemophilia patients to track their home factor infusions and bleeding records and relay this information in real-time to their clinicians at BC Children's or St. Paul's hospitals. iCHIP is the first of its kind in North America. It is comprised of two components – a Patient Home Module (PHM) and a Clinical Module. The PHM is a robust data management tool for patients to help them accurately track their use of factor product which they infuse at home. The PHM also links with the Clinical Module to enable clinicians to view in a timely manner if their patient requires a follow-up where the clinician may provide more timely clinical care, just-in-time patient education, and adjustments in their factor product dosage. This approach empowers patient self management. Using real-time feedback from the PHM as well as comprehensive patient electronic charting supports clinicians to provide enhanced patient care and improve care outcomes. The PHM is also available as a mobile app and can be downloaded on iTunes and Google Play.
