Your EMR Program

The Department of Health and Wellness has established an EMR Program to support the province-wide implementation and ongoing, advanced use of the EMR.

The EMR Program will:

  • Ensure the advanced use of the provincial EMR to support the delivery and administration of community-based care.
  • Provide services to support clinical and administrative use of the EMR (e.g., establish policies and standards, workflows, system configuration, form/assessment creation, analytical support, ongoing training)
  • Acts as a primary point of contact and facilitator for discussions and services delivered between stakeholder groups (e.g., Vendor contract management, EMR Program Governance activities)
  • Managing EMR requests for changes in support of annual business planning and longer term EMR roadmap planning activities.

The program is co-led by Dr. Kristy Newson and Kim Knox, EMR Program Manager.

Program Timeline

Phased implementations will begin in the summer and continue through 2021, 2022 and beyond.
