Canada has transformed the patient journey through the introduction of an eReferral system in the province of Alberta.
In this 50min webinar, you will hear from Dr Allen Ausford, a family physician and former CMIO of Alberta Health Service, on how Canada introduced an eReferral platform across the province of Alberta, its initial implementation and the lessons learned.
The pilot system is used for referrals for knee and hip ailments, as well as breast and lung cancers. At present, almost 300,000 system screens have been used by specialists in Alberta, with the expectation that the system will be expanded to other conditions over time. The system has saved clinicians time, improved accuracy of referrals and enhanced the patient journey.
