Electronic record goal

Our programs & services were designed holistically but our

record keeping systems were not!

Electronic Record - Goal

  • To implement a Holistic Patient Registration, Scheduling and Electronic Record for all clinical and non-clinical programs/services provided at the Garden River Wellness Centre

  • To build a model based on our holistic approach hence naming of the Electronic Record – Medical, Health did not define our needs – therefore the

    “Electronic Wellness Record”

Our unique electronic record
Our Unique Electronic Record

  • Every provider counted:

    • Privacy and Security issues were addressed during mapping of roles and responsibilities of both clinical and non-clinical staff including Traditional Healer, Prevention/Promotion workers;

      Centralized patient/client registration for every provider;

  • One Client - One Record

    • Improved communication between providers;

  • Unique Status Number displayed in demographic screen;

  • Simplified a reporting “nightmare” i.e. Federal, Provincial funder requirements;
