Benefits of IHealth
As Island Health moves closer to our goal of One Person, One Record, One Plan for Health and Care, we are happy to provide information on some of the benefits you will experience with IHealth and the Electronic Health Record (EHR).
These benefits include:
Improved safety: reduced medication errors and better information about risks.
Stronger continuity of care: access to patient information before and during handovers.
Enhanced collaboration: team-based care planning using current information.
Increased efficiency: less time repeating diagnostics and documentation and faster access to results.
Better decision-making: relevant, current data and order sets to guide care decisions.
Involved patients: greater patient involvement in care decisions with less need to repeat information.
Please take a few moments to read about benefits you can expect when the EHR is introduced, and what you can do to be a part of this exciting chapter in improving the health of Island residents through personalized, integrated care:
