Here at the Huntington Society of Canada (HSC), we continue to evaluate the services we provide for the Huntington disease (HD) community. We’re constantly looking for ways to improve what we do – and deliver information in an efficient and timely manner – right when you need it.
As such, we have made the decision to go undergo a digital transformation. An important element of digital transformation is, of course, technology. Often, however, it’s more about shedding outdated processes and legacy technology than it is about adopting new media.
Because digital transformation can look different for every company, there isn’t really a definition that applies to all. However, in general terms, HSC defines digital transformation as the integration of digital technology into all areas of our business, resulting in fundamental changes to how we operate and how we deliver value to our community.
So, what does all this mean for me?
Well, it means that all of our services will continue – but how some of them are made available will change. For members of our community, this transformation will be most noticeable in terms of our publications.
You’ll still have access to our newsletter, Horizon, our community newsletters, donor reports, and all other brochures and literature we produce. We simply won’t be printing them and mailing them out.
Instead, you will be able to find them, (for now as PDFs) on our website. And, you’ll know when they’re available because we will continue to issue e-blast notices for those who have opted in (if you would like to sign up now, you can do so at https://www.huntingtonsociety.ca/sign-up-for-our-e-newsletters/).
The first publication to go digital will be our Spring 2020 issue of Horizon. Look for an e-blast in the next week or so.
As we undergo this digital transformation, we welcome your feedback. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns. We would love to hear from you.
