Our Electronic Medical Record Initiative (EMRI) rollout is moving forward at a pace. Across the province, all new adult nursing clients of VHA (except palliative care) are being managed through the web-based applic
ation. EMRI gives these service providers immediate access to health information and the ability to complete and enhance their required documentation right in the client’s home. Nursing staff and clients alike are benefitting from the efficiency, accountability transparency and safety the electronic medical records system offers. We asked nurses using EMRI to tell us “six word stories” about its benefits. The results (some listed in the box at left) were powerful.
We’re excited to develop and roll out EMRI to child and family nursing clients as well as rehab service providers in 2017. Stay tuned for more updates!
