NRGH and Dufferin will be the first two locations in Island Health to experience IHealth, beginning mid-2015. IHealth is our new single electronic health record. It is interactive for health care providers and includes clinical decision support and quality measures that will guide critical thinking in a new way. IHealth is a powerful tool that will keep track of patients’ health records in one single record, across sites and across programs and services, over patients’ entire lives.
IHealth is a big change, and it will shift how clinical providers carry out and document their work. So if you feel you don’t know much about IHealth, now is a good time to learn more. This celebration event will be a great opportunity to find out more about what IHealth means for you and your patients! You can also meet the IHealth team (including some of your peers), play with devices, ask questions and hear from senior and executive leaders.
This is a drop in event which will feature tables and displays explaining specific clinical aspects and benefits of IHealth.
