The modern practice of medicine relies on communication. Making sure the right people have access to the right information can save lives. After the initial learning curve, electronic medical record (EMR) systems have been shown to save time, from more efficient administrative processes for staff to faster turnover for lab results updates, all of which can contribute to faster diagnoses.

Interoperability between systems also reduces the number of steps and intermediaries required to contact other EMR users or update patient records. All of this makes for improved communication between patients, clinics, hospitals, labs, and pharmacies.

Dr. Bryce Kelpin is medical director of Continuum Medical Care, a practice of family physicians and specialists who provide care for around 35,000 patients in West Vancouver, BC. Dr. Donald Chan, who has used an EMR system since 2004, shares his knowledge as a peer leader. He and his colleagues at Palisades Medical Clinic in Edmonton completed their transition to their new EMR system in June, 2010.
Melanie Sanders, clinic manager of the 21-person Meridian Medical Clinic in Stony Plain, is also an active peer leader in Alberta’s Peer-to-Peer Program.
