      OS11.03 - Improving Information Flow to Support Continuity of Care: EMR Interoperability (ID 371)

      Purpose/Objectives:
      The goal of the SK EMR Interoperability Project is to build the foundation for broader information flow between providers and the various clinical information systems used throughout the province. Specifically, the project will enable the flow of clinical information from point of care systems to the provincial eHR. Data will be collected from the primary care setting (e.g. community EMRs) to the provincial eHR, as well as core clinical documents from the acute care setting (e.g. hospital CIS). The project also involves a notification solution that will notify providers using an EMR when new information is available for a patient within their circle of care. The notification solution to the EMRs will also involve the option for data consumption back to the EMR as appropriate. By doing so, this will allow providers to access the appropriate clinical information at the right time to support informed clinical decision making.


      Methodology/Approach:
      High level approach: - Minimize impact to providers? workflow and workload through early engagement of the provider community - Work with EMR vendors to auto pull data from known workflows within the POC systems - Identify use cases in which timely notifications regarding particular information helps support the coordination of patient care - Participate in national dialogues to assess the current state relative to a standardized Patient Summary data set to determine key information to submit to the provincial eHR - Review CIHI?s PHC EMR indicators/priority subset, academic literature, etc. to support establishment of key patient data set - Leverage FHIR STU3 as industry standard HL7 specification for clinical content data exchange and RESTful API behaviors - Establish necessary FHIR repositories to support the clinical data storage and exchange - Initial focus placed on existing provinical eHR data repositories and its transformation services to FHIR standards


      Finding/Results:
      The EMR Interoperability project is expected to go live in February 2019, and so findings and results are not available at this time.


      Conclusion/Implications/Recommendations:
      The EMR Interoperability project is expected to go live in February 2019, and so conclusions and recommendations are not available at this time.


      140 Character Summary:
      SK EMR Interoperability collects data from POC systems to make it available in the provincial eHR, coupled w/ a notification sol'n to support timely information flow

      OS18.03 - Engaged and Empowered: SK Citizen Health Portal (ID 318)

      Lillian Ly, eHealth Saskatchewan; Regina/CA

      • Abstract
      • Slides

      Purpose/Objectives:
      Citizens often do not have enough personalized health information to take an active and meaningful role in managing their own health care. In 2014, a Citizen Health Portal (CHP) was identified as a strategic breakthrough initiative aimed at providing individuals with access to their health system information and empowering them to participate in achieving better health outcomes. By providing individuals with access to their health information, it helps improve the health literacy of Saskatchewan citizens and allows for proactive conversations about their health with their care teams. Saskatchewan?s consumer health solution, CHP, is a web-based service designed for citizens to access their personal health information. It provides opportunity for input of self-generated information, as well as interactive tools that enhance lifelong health quality for individuals and their families. eHealth Saskatchewan (eHealth) went into the pilot with a focus on speed to deliver, cost and benefits evaluation of a citizen centric portal. The portal leveraged existing assets from the provincial repositories such as lab results, immunization history, prescription history and visits to acute care facilities, to provide citizens with valuable health information in CHP. Based on the results from the pilot, it is eHealth?s intent to proceed with a full implementation of CHP. A full production rollout of CHP could result in a transformative change within the health system. CHP could be leveraged by health and other partners to be the gateway for citizens to health information and services.


      Methodology/Approach:
      CHP Phase 2 will be looking to scale from a pilot group of about 1,100 citizens to the general Saskatchewan population. The estimated timeframe for the project is 24 months, which includes the: design and development phase, soft launch or technical go-live, and provincial go-live followed by benefits evaluation activities. Highlights include: Account and Access Management - Revamp the registration process to provide a seamless user experience, while integrating the provincial client registry to offer alignment with identity management in SK. A mobile interface will also be offered for those accessing their CHP accounts via tablets and smart phones. Personal Data Entry & Tracking - Optimize the workflow and work effort of data entry and personal tracking by offering direct integration to wearable devices and mobile health applications so that linked data seamlessly populates citizens? CHP profiles. Integrated Data Sources - Design and architecture for provincial repository integration will be improved using FHIR which will allow for flexibility to scale to target adoptions and not negatively impact other integrated services. Provincial data sources will include lab results, medical imaging report, immunization history, hospital visit history, and prescription information. Citizen-Provider Interactions - Features and functionalities that offer services and tools that bring together shared care plans to improve health and wellness through collaboration with providers via secure messaging, provider directories, and interactive shared widgets.


      Finding/Results:
      CHP Phase 2 is anticipated to go live in 2019, and so findings and results are not available at this time.


      Conclusion/Implications/Recommendations:
      CHP Phase 2 is anticipated to go live in 2019, and so conclusion/recommendations are not available at this time.


      140 Character Summary:
      SK?s consumer health solution is an online service designed to help improve the health literacy of citizens and promote proactive conversations about their health.
