24/7 EDMONTON APP
The 24/7 Edmonton App provides real-time information to front-line workers in the field. It was developed as part of a comprehensive, coordinated response to leverage existing service for vulnerable people. This technology is a catalyst to drive the collection of common data and shared measurements for the use of integrated service planning and delivery in Edmonton.
24/7 Crisis Diversion partners Boyle Street Community Services and HOPE Mission agreed to use the 24/7 Edmonton App in 2016 with their front-line staff in the field to record their work and the nature of those encounters with vulnerable people. The app was used by the Winter Warming Bus in 2015, 2016 and 2018; it continues to be the data collection method for Boyle Street Community Services, Street Outreach programs and was adopted for the #YEGAmbassador program in 2017-2018.
