Coordination of Care September Meeting: Cross-Canada Updates and Roundtable
For our September meeting we will be having some updates from projects going on across the country.
Clinical Document eXchange in British Columbia
Presenter: Cindie Robertson, Coordinator - Health Information Exchange/Clinical Document eXchange, Interior Health Authority
Cindie Robertson will be updating us on progress made with Clinical Document eXchange (CDX), an HIE service developed in Interior Health. This system allows sending of multiple message types (e.g. HL7 v2, HL7 CDA). It also facilitates different distribution models, including EMR to EMR to support referrals and consults, as well as HCIS (Meditech & Cerner) outbound to EMRs. This distribution service is used in the Interior and Northern Regional Health Authorities in BC.
Pilot Update: Saskatchewan’s Citizen Health Information Portal
Presenter: Wayne Heth, Senior Consultant, Heth Consulting and eHealth Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan launched a pilot of their Citizen Health Information Portal in January 2016, and have recruited over a thousand users since its inception. In his presentation, Wayne Heth will provide an overview of some of the features that these users have had access to and some initial findings from the pilot.
ISO Use Case Development for Patient Summary Standards
Presenters: Don Newsham, Chief Executive, 4C Consulting & Elizabeth Keller, VP Product Strategy & Delivery, OntarioMD
Don Newsham and Elizabeth Keller, both engaged as international standards leaders, will be providing us with an introduction to the work being undertaken by the Joint Initiative Council regarding the development of a new ISO use case standard for patient summary. This innovative standards set effort, subject of an upcoming October 26th webinar, aims to enable the full interoperable exchange of health data that would in turn facilitate effective patient care coordination.
As part of the meeting, we plan to have a roundtable so as to hear about what you and your teams are working on and what you would like our community to collaborate on. Details about how we will proceed with the roundtable will be provided prior to the meeting.
(Also to note, we have changed our meeting time to 1pm ET / 10AM PT so as to better accommodate the schedules of our colleagues out West. We will likely keep this time slot going forward.)
