Title: Connected for quality care: How EMRs can help save lives in the fight against opioids

In Canada’s most populous province, OntarioMD has worked for more than a decade to ensure primary care providers have access to certified EMRs and interconnected digital health technology – and the knowledge needed to effectively use these tools to improve practice efficiency and patient care. With support from our partners, QHR Technologies, Orion Health, TELUS Health and OSCAR EMR, this showcase will demonstrate how OntarioMD products and services are enabling physicians, specialists, hospitals, specialty clinics and others to work together to make a significant system-wide impact on priority health issues, such as the opioid crisis.

Title: From East to West: A Look at how jurisdictions leverage EHRs to enhance care coordination

This showcase will focus on how to get more value from EHRs from a clinical, technical, business and patient perspective. The discussion will use case study presentations from two jurisdictions in which Orion Health is active to display how EHRs are used by health professionals in different scenarios. The first, a case from Alberta, deals with e-Consult and e-Referral. It will also cover off how Alberta is connecting their EMRs to their EHR known as Netcare. The second case from the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information will present an example of how their EHR called HEALTHe NL is being leveraged for an eOrdering project with the Vascular Lab in St. John’s. This case will also present how the EHR is a valuable tool in safer medication management as under the new Prescription Monitoring Act legislation, prescribers will be required to review a patient’s medication profile using HEALTHe NL before writing a prescription for an opioid.

What these cases help to illuminate is the importance of sharing of information across jurisdictions to develop a clearer, more responsive patient profile, which helps with care plans. Orion Health has been working to identify gaps in the existing system. Identifying these enabling technologies, such as the ones used in Alberta, Newfoundland, and Labrador, is of benefit to the system. Being the first of its kind in Canada the Alberta EMR to EHR integration is crucial.

Title: Innovative Mobile Technology Brings New Hope to Patients with Chronic  Conditions and Surgeries

Samsung Canada, in partnership with Aetonix, is helping simplify patient-centered care at home for chronic patients and enabling more effective post-operative care. You will hear and see how in rural Ontario, specialists have realized decreased admissions by engaging with COPD patients and their families through remote monitoring. In Toronto, a surgical program is now able to provide same-day discharge for knee replacements. By leveraging the aTouchAway™ Enterprise platform from Aetonix on mobile devices, these two use cases, through demonstrations, will illustrate the radical transformation of patient care with mobile technology.

Title: Enabling the Data Driven Healthcare Enterprise with Self-Service Visual Analytics

Abstract: Healthcare is in the throes of transformation today like never before. Healthcare reform is driving new business models, business processes and systems to enable this transformation. However, most healthcare providers find themselves challenged to empower their doctors, clinicians, nurses, administrators and knowledge workers on the frontline with the ability to see and understand their data and answer their questions, without significant IT intervention. This impedes them from access to timely and accurate actionable insights needed to get a 360 degree view of their patients, identify and manage risk, and comply with newer regulations efficiently and effectively.
In this presentation, learn how industry leaders in Healthcare like the Alberta Health System (AHS), St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, Providence Health, Barnes Jewish Health System, Mount Sinai Medical Center, University of Michigan Health System, Piedmont Healthcare and Seattle Children¹s Hospital are responding to these industry trends. Adopting self-service data discovery and analytics is helping these leaders move away from the ‘report factory’ paradigm. This is enabling them to empower their knowledge workers including executives, line of business (LOB) leaders, physicians, clinicians, nurses, and administrators with the actionable insights needed to deliver superior patient outcomes at a lower cost and risk of non-compliance, while measurably impacting their efficiency, productivity and morale.
