Our commitment to excellence also extends to the way in which our patients use information technology to participate in their care. At KARMA, you will truly be the main priority at every step of the way.
Our innovative patient centered, interactive KARMA Network is the first of its kind in Canada, allowing patients to become active participants in their care. It can be accessed from your “smart phone” or computer, and allows access to a wide range of information
Patient History Form
Before you arrive for your first appointment, you can complete a detailed patient history form for you and your partner. This allows us to be ready to discuss your specific needs and determine the best course of treatment for your particular situation. The completed form will be sent automatically via the KARMA Network and the information will be directly entered into our database.
The document library contains a continually updated resource for documents pertaining to your treatment at KARMA. It includes instruction sheets for various types of cycles, consent form for various procedures, and general information on how our clinic runs. Having this resource online means you can access the documents whenever you need them without having to call us directly or come in to pick them up.
We feel that efficient communication is vital to your satisfaction here at KARMA. When we are working "in person" with one of our patients, we want them to have our full attention, and that means it is often difficult to answer phone calls immediately. Our solution to this is our secure KARMA Network, which permits our patients to send us a message at any time, and we will respond as quickly as possible during our business hours, or the next day if you send it after hours.
Most cycles require daily monitoring of follicles by ultrasound and blood work. These results are not immediately available while you are at the clinic so we created the online Cycle Flowsheet to allow you to see your daily results as soon as they are ready. Like our secure messaging system, this allows you to get the information you need faster, and in a more efficient manner.
The final part of the KARMA Network is the patient discussion forum. It's very much like a regular Internet forum, but is restricted to patients who are registered with KARMA. Once you begin treatment you will be able to participate in discussions with other patients to provide or receive support during a sometimes difficult time. It's almost like a support group, but you can participate from anywhere, using a PC, smart phone or iPad.
