PEC - Knowing is Better Logo - ENG

Knowing is Better for Clinicians is an education campaign designed 'for clinicians by clinicians' and was developed to generate broad awareness of the benefits of interconnected electronic health record systems in clinical practice and the plan across Canada.

Educational resources were created based on identified clinical needs and have been tested through stakeholder participation and focus groups with front-line clinicians from a variety of settings including primary care, acute care, public health and community care.

What Clinicians Are Saying

Health care professionals need timely access to the most up-to-date information when making a patient care decision. However, lab test results, X-rays, medication histories, and other pertinent information are often in many different locations resulting in duplication, extra administrative tasks, or relying on a patient's memory – ultimately leading to a delay in treatment or care planning.

Those clinicians who are already working with electronic systems are experiencing benefits such as timely access to information, improved communication and collaboration, decision support and workflow, efficiency and avoided duplication as well as improved information management and patient education. Physicians, nurses and pharmacists from a variety of practice settings all agree that there is no going back to paper. Watch a video to see the difference electronic health care record systems are making to the way they deliver care.
