Canada has pioneered the introduction of an eReferral system in the province of Alberta.
In this webinar, you will hear from Dr Allen Ausford a family physician and former CMIO of Alberta Health Service, on how the system was designed, its initial implementation, and the lessons learned. Dr Ausford has been intimately involved in setting the system up, and ensuring buy-ins from involved clinicians.
So far 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.
