We're a Canada Health Infoway LEADing practice!

The Centre for Family Medicine FHT eHealth Centre of Excellence is honoured to be a recipient of this year’s Canada Health Infoway and Accreditation Canada’s LEADing Practice award for Project ALIVE.

 

Project ALIVE was pilot project executed by the eHealth Centre of Excellence and funded by eHealth Ontario, designed to create a model for improving the clinical value of information in electronic medical records (EMR), through standardization and codification of EMR data.

 

Through Project ALIVE, the Centre for Family Medicine FHT was able to code 18 chronic conditions using SNOMED CT and ICD-9 in all patient records and developed reliable alerts and reminders encouraging clinicians to implement best practices for patients being seen. These alerts and reminders have been designed to fit into workflow and be carried out by multiple members of the care team.

 

The LEADing Practice Initiative is designed to raise awareness and understanding of the clinical benefits of digital health. LEADing Practices are noteworthy examples of high-quality leadership and service delivery (Accreditation Canada, 2013).

 

A LEADing Practice:

  • Addresses one or more of the opportunities for action to improve the patient experience
  • Exemplifies one or more of the five benefit areas of digital health
  • Supports care management across the health care continuum
  • Enables continuous quality improvement
  • Is inter-professional and patient-centered
  • Evaluates and is able to demonstrate intended results
  • Is adaptable by others
  • Is sustainable
