eNotification is an automated electronic notification of hospital admissions, deaths in hospital, and hospital discharges from Island Health facilities to community GPs who use compatible EMRs:
It reaches users around the province and 92% of physicians in the Island Health region.
The Victoria/ South Island Divisions of Family Practice Transitions in Care committee was instrumental in developing the eNotification system, contributing clinical expertise to its technical design and testing, and piloting the system prior to its launch. In June 2017, all technical and clinical support will be handed off to Island Health, making eNotification 100% sustainable.
