In cooperation with Pinnguaq Association, a non-profit organization that promotes technological advancement with rural and remote communities, and Qaujigiartiit Health Research Centre, an independent, non-profit community research institute founded by Government of Nunavut, Many Hats was tasked with creating an all-in-one mobile application for new members of the health care work force arriving in Nunavut.
The Health NU mobile application is an intuitive, easy-to-use, easy-to-read library that is specifically designed to be accessed quickly in times of need. It contains information about working and communicating in a multilingual environment, the organization of the health system, the Inuit historical context of different regions, important aspects of health care practice, and values and expectations in the health care setting. It also includes useful community-specific information including maps, phone numbers, information pages, weather information, ways to get involved in the community, and things to pack. As of today, Health NU has become a must-have mobile application for any health care professionals, social workers, or anyone who is looking to visit the Northwest.
