Webinar now available online: “Mental Health Tools and Resources for the EMR”

Featuring guest speaker Dr. Joan Chan, the eHealth Centre of Excellence’s QBIC (Quality Based Improvements in Care) team recently hosted a webinar highlighting mental health tools and resources for the electronic medical record (EMR). Dr. Chan, a family physician with the Guelph Family Health Team (FHT), shares her firsthand experience with using these tools and explains how she’s adapted them into her clinical workflow.   

 

Features of the mental health toolkit are highlighted below:

 

EMR tool for Mental Health visits

 The eHealth Centre of Excellence has developed an EMR tool to assist with your mental health encounters that:

  • Standardizes documentation with an easy to use  Encounter Assistant
  • Is based off of the new HQO Quality Guidelines for Major Depression Disorder
  • Directly links to screening tools (PHQ-9, GAD-7), resources and referrals
  • Includes a new Patient handout feature, which enables you to:
    • Create an individualized treatment plan and educational handout for your patients 
    • Reinforce your in-visit health teaching
    • Create a medication plan and new medication education
    • Customize self-care activities and referrals
Added features for tablets
  • Enhance your practice by using our “QBIC Depression” tablet eForm
  • eForm links directly with our mental health visit Encounter Assistant (described above) to help auto-populate information in the EMR 
  • Be able to review your patient’s subjective information before you enter the exam room

If you are interested in more information, please contact Change Managment Specialist Tara Lonergan at: Tara.Lonergan@ehealthCE.ca

 

 

Watch the webinar below:

 

 

“I have been using the progress note Encounter Assistant tool in combination with the OCEAN patient questionnaire for the past several months with my patients, and have found it very valuable to guide my patient encounters, and it has certainly cut down on my charting time for these visits.”

Two webinars coming soon: Depression and Advance Care Planning

Webinar 1: Managing Mental Health Encounters in your EMR - Monday, January 22

 

Join the eHealth Centre of Excellence and Dr. Joan Chan, Family Physician at Guelph Family Health Team, via webinar to learn more about managing mental health encounters in your electronic medical Record (EMR).

 

Just released: a custom form for clinicians to use for managing and documenting depression and anxiety patient encounters in the EMR.  Part of this form is compatible with tablets and Ocean; when the patient completes the eform on the tablet, it will auto-populate part of the clinician’s note.

 

Other features include:

  • Auto-populating and tracking assessment tools such as PHQ-9, GAD-7 and the Brief Pain Inventory
  • Handouts with individualized Patient Medication Plans
  • Quick links to mental health resources and referral options
  • Based on the Health Quality Ontario (HQO) quality standard for major depression

 

During the webinar we will provide a virtual demo of the tool and how it integrates with the tablets. CME credits can be obtained through both in person and virtual sessions.
