Care providers, administrative staff and patients will soon be able to access and share health data across the province in a secure and standardized way, like never before, thanks to the work underway to better connect our health system.
Connected Health System initiatives will break down barriers to information sharing between primary care clinics, hospitals, community services and clinical systems. Here are a few of the key benefits made possible through province-wide connectivity:
- Patients and caregivers will have better tools to communicate and share information with their care team.
- Care providers will be able to access and share patient data more seamlessly, improving their ability to coordinate and deliver informed care.
- Administrative staff will benefit as manual workflows are replaced with digital tools and automated processes that reduce administrative burden.
- Developers and IT staff will use a common standard for storing and sharing data, increasing reliability, security, performance and innovation.
