Purpose/Objectives: Interoperability can support the shift of care to primary, specialist and community care, and enable collaboration and information access across multidisciplinary care team members. This presentation provides an overview about an innovative clinical interoperability system, and how EMR users are seeing benefits to their clinical practice through improved information sharing and workflows. Methodology/Approach: This standards-based solution supports the ability to exchange multiple types of information including referrals, consult notes and transcribed reports. Utilizing provincial standards, clinical reports are displayed in a standardized format, and discrete data is also sent so that EMRs can display this information in different views and can use the data for decision support. Finding/Results: This system not only provides primary and community care users with timely access to information about their patients but has also improved clinical workflows and the end-user experience. By working with clinicians, a number of opportunities to improve clinical practice were identified and implemented. This functionality includes closed-loop ordering, identifying outstanding referrals, more accurate linkage of documents to charts and performing quality reviews on standardized documentation. Conclusion/Implication/Recommendations: By establishing a strong, collaborative relationship between health authorities and EMR vendors, implementations can develop solutions that support our clinicians in a way that will help make their practice more efficient. This has resulted in being able to exchange timely clinical information and also enabling improved workflows and decision support for a clinical practice. 140 Character Summary: By connecting to a new clinical interoperability system, EMR users are seeing benefits to their practice through improved information sharing and workflows.
