Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice

EMR Health Informatics

Using EMR data to improve quality of care

Physician Leads: Dr. Chelsea Ankowski and Dr. Jeanette Boyd

EMR QIKB Division is working to advance the clinical utility of physician EMRs with innovative tools and technologies to support self-reflection, practice improvement, and program evaluation.

We are collaborating with Interior Health Authority, the BC arm of the Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network (BC-CPCSSN) and Population Data BC to offer EMR-integrated analytic tools. Nakusp is one of the pilot sites currently implementing these tools and the Boundary as a group have indicated their readiness. 

Finally, we are working with collaborating with Health Data Coalition (HDC) to support physician-led data sharing networks that encourage self-reflection and practice improvement in patient care. As the HDC technology becomes available, local implementations will be established.
