Infoway supports the efforts of the provinces and territories to significantly increase the number of clinicians using electronic medical records (EMR). Our work includes:
- Supporting jurisdictions' EMR programs, which incent physicians and nurse practitioners to implement, adopt and use EMRs in their offices, primary care centres and out-patient clinics
- Upgrading and connecting EMRs so they are interoperable with the jurisdiction's electronic health record (EHR) components
- Helping clinicians achieve increased clinical value through the advanced use of EMRs, such as managing patient populations
To date, Infoway has invested in over 15,000 EMR systems in partnership with provincial and territorial governments. These investments leverage electronic health record (EHR) investments by making existing patient health information such as lab results, prescribed drugs, diagnostic images and selected hospital reports available to all clinicians.
The program is also aligned to Clinical Peer Networks that provide peer-to-peer mentorship to support effective EMR implementation and enhance clinical value through advanced use in various provinces.
