Progress on PrescribeIT™
Bobbi Reinholdt, Division Executive, e-Prescribing, Canada Health Infoway, CA
In August 2017, Canada Health Infoway launched its national e-prescribing service in Huntsville, Ontario. Since then, multiple sites across Ontario and Alberta have joined the service, with plans underway in six other provinces to introduce the service that will send prescriptions electronically from a prescriber’s EMR directly to the patient’s pharmacy of choice. Join Bobbi Reinholdt as she describes how this new service delivery model is being rolled out and what valuable lessons were learned along the way.
