Let’s Get In Form-ation
Beginning May 2016, the Ministry of Health collaborated with B.C. Government’s Digital Experience Division (GDX) to find ways of improving online delivery of MSP and PA with a focus on overall service awareness, enrolment, and communication. The GDX team took an iterative approach to inform the development of a cohesive digital enrolment solution based on citizen needs. The research and design activities were structured on the principles outlined in B.C.’s Service Design Playbook.
