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

“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.”
