Thursday, October 26, 2017: The eHealth Centre of Excellence wins AFHTO Bright Lights award!
The AFHTO (Association of Family Health Teams of Ontario) Bright Lights Awards is an annual event that recognizes leadership, outstanding work and significant progress being made to improve the value delivered by interprofessional primary care teams across Ontario.
At this year’s event, the eHealth Centre of Excellence (eCE) was delighted to receive a Bright Lights award in the category of Optimizing Use of Resources!
This award is a credit to the efforts of the eCE’s System Coordinated Access (SCA) program, which is currently working to:
improve access to services for the residents in the community;
support organizations who are seeking to improve access to their services through standardization and coordination;
leverage technology to enhance the referral process; and
support the advancement of the Provincial eReferral Management strategy.
Thank you to AFHTO for this wonderful recognition, and to the WWLHIN and MOHLTC for the support. Thanks also to all of our partners across the community – we couldn’t do the work we do without your continued support!
Canada Health Infoway (Infoway), in partnership with Accreditation Canada, announced the Centre for Family Medicine FHT and the eHealth Centre of Excellence one of six LEADing Practice award recipients for demonstrating leadership in the advanced use of technology in clinical practice. View our LEADing Practice Profile for more information.
The award is part of Infoway’s pan-Canadian Knowing is Better clinician education campaign developed to generate awareness of the benefits of digital health in Canada. A LEADing Practice exemplifies one or more of the opportunities for action to improve the patient experience and one or more of the five benefit areas of digital health and represents best practice characteristics for the use in clinical practice: Learning from others; Exemplifying benefits; Accelerating adoption; and Delivering results.
Over the next year, we will be sharing our LEADing Practice with other clinicians and health care leaders to help accelerate the adoption and effective use of digital health across Canada.
