Clinical Support Staff
With the implementation of the new electronic health record (EHR), there will be new work processes introduced that will change the way work is done, and how duties are currently performed, by Clinical Support Staff.
The EHR will change how Clinical Support Staff accesses, reviews and enters information in patients’ health records and communicate about their care. Orders, assessments, care planning and interventions will be entered electronically. Patient scheduling for assessment and care activities within Island Health will be a component of the EHR, and registering patients will involve verifying patient identifiers against a provincial database.
