Patient and Consumer Health Platforms


InstantPHR (IPHR) Toolkit

With TELUS Health, PHRs are managed through the InstantPHR (IPHR) Toolkit – a tool that allows TELUS to easily create and customize personal health applications. IPHR provides all the tools necessary to build a comprehensive health management portal. The main components of the IPHR include:

Personal Health Record

  • A robust library of healthcare tools including forms, tables, reports, charts, graphs, tracking, surveys, care plans, messaging and scheduling
  • Patients can upload, download, view, modify, track and share key health data
  • Connects with TELUS health space®

The healthcare professional (HCP) portal

  • This provider platform features a number of tools including dashboards, monitoring, reports, care plan editor and messaging which allow individual care team members to customize the view of their patient population, including new data and health information
  • Health professionals can assign, modify and personalize how the patient is managing themselves outside of the care facility with the use of a Personal Health Record

The InstantPHR (IPHR) Toolkit is provided by our partner Get Real Health and has received pre-implementation certification from Canada Health Infoway as a consumer health platform.


TELUS health space

TELUS health space® is Canada’s first online health platform, empowering Canadians to access, manage and share their personal health information. It’s available to sponsoring organizations such as hospitals, clinics, health authorities, ministries, and health organizations. This managed service seamlessly connects members of those organizations to Personal Health Records (PHRs), Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), portable health devices, healthcare applications, and existing information systems.

TELUS health space has received pre-implementation certification from Canada Health Infoway as a consumer health platform.


We are currently working with a few provincial partners to launch provincial PHRs for their citizens. Stay tuned for more details about these projects.

Easy to use by patients and providers

The PHR allows for anytime, anywhere access to the personal health record via the web using a computer, smartphone or tablet. The application allows for better tracking of health information and conditions as well as the display of health data made easy to review and understand.

Enhanced collaboration

The PHR allows for one or two-way data sharing between health professionals and patients. Both patients and health professionals can choose which data is shared. In some cases, data from the clinics’ Electronic Medical Records can be shared with the patients.

  The TELUS PHR application for the Mental Health Engagement Network Project is a life line. This will help a lot of people. Maybe we will not hear about a young fellow or a young lady taking their lives, at least I hope so.
