3 © 2006 Canada Health Infoway Inc. 3 Canada Health Infoway Mission To foster and accelerate the development and adoption of electronic health information systems with compatible standards and communications technologies on a pan-Canadian basis, with tangible benefits to Canadians. To build on existing initiatives and pursue collaborative relationships in pursuit of its mission. Vision A high-quality, sustainable and effective Canadian health care system supported by an infostructure that provides residents of Canada and their healthcare providers timely, appropriate and secure access to the right information when and where they enter into the healthcare system. Respect for privacy is fundamental to this vision. Goal Infoway’s plan is to have an interoperable electronic health record in place across 50 percent of Canada (by population) by the end of Shared Governance Facilitates Collaboration Canada Health Infoway is an independent not-for-profit organization, whose Members are Canada’s 14 federal, provincial and territorial Deputy Ministers of Health.

Funder Intervener Developer “Invest, advise & monitor”  Invests with Partners  Involved in project planning  Monitors progress of projects and quality of deliverables Gated funding manages risk “Work alongside & take over if needed” “Write code & build modules” “Fund & ignore” Strategic Investor Leadership in setting strategic direction and standards for EHR deployment across Canada Infoway is Not  A Granting Agency  A Venture Capital Fund  A builder, direct implementer or holder of proprietary solutions An active partner, contributing to all aspects of the projects, while establishing a broad knowledge & experience base across Canada

5 EHR An Electronic Health Record (EHR) provides each individual in Canada with a secure and private lifetime record of their key health history and care within the health system. The record is available electronically to authorized health providers and the individual anywhere, anytime in support of high quality care. This record is designed to facilitate the sharing of data – across the continuum of care, across healthcare delivery organizations and across geographies. 5 © 2006 Canada Health Infoway Inc.

6 6 EHR Key Clinical & Business Requirements Patient centric, life-long longitudinal record of clinical data Support for accurate, complete, timely delivery of information Allowing private and secured access to data made available in the EHR Focused on clinically relevant data shared beyond organizational boundaries Shared across multiple organizations, jurisdictions Scalable to allow continuous, extensive growth of clinical information with a ROI More POS applications sourcing data to EHR More users accessing and using data from EHR Towards more physician order entry and decision support Interoperable, integrated Standards based

8 EHR Infostructure 8 The EHR Infostructure is a collection of common and reusable components in the support of a diverse set of health information management applications. It consists of software solutions to support integration with the EHR, data definitions for the EHR and messaging standards for integration and interoperability. © 2006 Canada Health Infoway Inc.

12 12 Standards-based Solutions Why Standards? They facilitate information exchange; are a critical foundation for EHR They create opportunity for future cost reduction as vendors and systems converge on pan-Canadian and international standards They ease effort required for systems integration Mandatory Investment Eligibility Requirements Compliance to standards (infostructure, architecture) Initiatives must comply with existing guidelines or standards adopted by Infoway Where standards or guidelines do not exist, projects must support longer-term interoperability and congruence of solutions Infoway’s role is to set standards and requirements for robust, interoperable products and outcomes Standards

17 © 2006 Canada Health Infoway Inc. 17 Infoway Standards Collaborative Scope Infoway will be home for development, ongoing operations, SDO liaisons, and pan-Canadian collaboration and coordination of standards Includes collaboration and coordination functions of HL7 Canada, Partnership, ISO (as shared with Canadian Standards Association), DICOM Liaison Scope is standards within Infoway’s mandate for the EHR and eClaims standard (NeCST) Type of standards include: Messaging, Vocabulary and Interoperability Profiles

18 © 2006 Canada Health Infoway Inc. 18 Conformance for pan-Canadian Standards Definition of Conformance Conformance includes the development of pan-Canadian standards business requirements, the conformance testing against these business requirements, and certification. Scope Functional, message level interoperability, privacy and security, usability Infoway and the eHealth Collaboratory will share responsibilities for conformance on pan-Canadian Standards Infoway (Standards Collaborative) will undertake the development of business requirements, including the development of conformance statements, for the pan-Canadian approved standards; The eHealth Collaboratory (Collaboratory) will undertake the building of the conformance testing environment, the development of the testing processes and will undertake the actual conformance testing against the established business requirements.

23 © 2006 Canada Health Infoway Inc. 23 Lessons Learned & Key Challenges Standards Collaboration Process is a success! Stable for Use Standards and Selected Standards Strategies in 1 year Active engagement and collaboration across the country and internationally Needed additional decision points along the Standards Life Cycle Appropriate level of detail and amount of information to make decisions is different for different committees Translating between technical and business “speak” Stakeholder and expert overburden Being very clear and specific on what decisions and words mean E.g. select vs adopt vs mandate Standards readiness – for test/pilot, for implementation projects Policy and EHR implementation issues versus standards issues One strategy or one development methodology doesn’t fit all
