Island Health collaborating with physician colleagues on IHealth implementation

Island Health is committed to working collaboratively with our physician colleagues, clinical providers and staff at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH), Dufferin Place and Oceanside Health Centre on the implementation of IHealth, our new electronic health record (EHR).

The EHR will store an individual’s medical information and history in one electronic health record. Implementing a system transformation of this scope is difficult. We have always known that once implementation began we would need to make modifications and improvements to the system along the way. We recognize the impact a transformational change this size can have on our patients, providers and staff. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience during this implementation.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve the quality and safety of patient care.

Our Vision: Excellent health and care for everyone, everywhere, every time.
