Enabling HealthCare for the Siksika Nation

Located 100 kilometres east of Calgary, Alberta, the Siksika Nation has experienced first-hand the difference the Axia FibreNet can make in the health and well-being of a community. The Siksika Nation’s health services encompass a number of components including a community health program, a medical clinic, an elder lodge, professional services, emergency services, and a community wellness program.

Plans were put in place to expand the health services available to the Siksika Nation with the goal of providing the highest quality of care possible. They soon realized the fast, stable, secure connectivity was a critical element in delivering those services.

The Challenge

One of the first hurdles the Siksika Nation had to overcome was getting approval as a federal entity to connect to the Axia FibreNet. Working closely with Health Canada and the Siksika Nation, Axia helped to facilitate the approval process through the Government of Alberta.

The Solution

Once all parties came to a consensus, the actual network construction got underway, with a physical fibre connection being made to a Meet-Me Centre approximately 1 ½km from the Siksika site. Two Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) were put in place: one internal network at the Health and Wellness Centre and a second connecting the Wellness Centre to Clinic Vault, an electronic medical records application service provider.

The Result

The FibreNet supported medical system allowed for home care nurses to carry hand-held devices to access client files and records at any time. Satellite dialysis and expanded MRI capability became a reality, while initiatives such as establishing a TeleHealth program, and implementing electronic medical records and digital X-ray storage were put in place.

This technology implementation advanced medical services available to the Siksika Nation and enabled them to attract and retain quality doctors, dentists, radiologists and other healthcare professionals benefiting the community as a whole.
