The i4C Dashboard has been a concrete/visible example of how EMR data can help the clinicians manage practice challenges. It has prompted a desire for further EMR enhancements and tools. Our clinicians are embracing change where previously there was resistance. Thank you for allowing our team to participate in this initiative.
The i4C Dashboard enables, with a few clicks, chart audits on my entire practice for many quality indicators. For one specific success example, the Dashboard easily enabled a list of my patients on chronic higher dose narcotics. With this list, I was able to identify and work with these patients to successfully reduce their dosages.
One of the best features of HRM is the speed of the delivery. As any physician will tell you, processing paperwork takes us away from direct patient care, our personal time and using this technology, we have been able to reclaim some of that time back.
I have found the eConsult EMR integration a very useful tool for providing patient care in Ontario.
