Social Networking Meets Healthcare: Upopolis Helping Children Feel a Bit More at Home While in the Hospital

Upopolis is Canada's first private online social network for hospitalized kids. Conceived by Kids Health Links Foundation (KHLF), Upopolis was created for children and youth, who often feel isolated when they are in hospital, to stay connected to their friends, families and teachers. Through a unique partnership with KHLF, TELUS donated technology services to develop Upopolis and worked closely with KHLF and McMaster Children's Hospital to pilot the program. McMaster Children's Hospital was the first to launch Upopolis in December, 2007. The program will continue to evolve as it rolls out to children's hospitals across the country in partnership with KHLF.
