Implementation of Orion’s EHR solution - HEALTHe NL ? Current state, in relation to Canada Health Infoway’s EHR Blueprint ? Adoption metrics ? Current usage ? Governance and future plans

      Methodology/Approach: This presentation will highlight the adoption strategy for HEALTHe NL. This includes the strategic focus on target groups based in a phased approach as informational components of HEALTHe NL became available such as: ? A focus on physicians in the Eastern Regional Health Authority (RHA) when only Eastern RHA laboratory information was available ? Nurses completing medication reconciliations based on the robust medication profiles ? Clinicians in remote areas referring patients to the tertiary care centre, that would otherwise not have access to that information, for health care services including; cancer care, Janeway (children’s hospital), cardiac and vascular services.

      Finding/Results: This presentation will highlight the current state of adoption for HEALTHe NL including the following information:: ? Total active use ? Top signed on user groups (eg. nurses, physicians, pharmacists) ? Top departmental users (eg. medicine, surgery, emergency room, nursing) ?

In addition lessons learned speaking to challenges and future areas of focus will be shared.

Future plans and opportunities: With active use, comes increased requests for product enhancements and integration. We are currently working with numerous stakeholders to review and priortize opportunities for expansion of the HEALTHe NL viewer including eNotifications, eReferral, eConsult and eOrdering.
