Many divisions have maintained committees to facilitate leadership and coordination of EMR/IT within their communities, either as a division board sub-committee or as a separate “EMR Community of Practice” committee. Divisions wishing to continue these committees and related member IT meetings (other than EMR user groups) are encouraged to do so and should ensure that funding is addressed in their infrastructure budgets.
Central EMR/IT support & coordination
GPSC is funding an additional year of Central EMR/IT support while a business plan is developed for ongoing technical support in physician offices. Within the Practice Support and Quality Department, there will be continued core support services in 2015/2016 for EMR vendor coordination, EMR enhancement (e.g. EMR-2-EMR data transfer and forms/ requisitions/ templates), and the technology support service.
