19 Clinician Perspective “ Improved access to the record means multiple clinicians at different locations can discuss a client with the information in front of them, this has reduced the need for hospitalisation in some cases ” “Electronic note writing in CPF has reduced clinical risk because notes and medication information are clearly legible” “ CPF has improved clinical care by providing clinicians with permanent access to the medical record, regardless of the site you are on. You no longer have to wait for files to be couriered across sites ” “CPF saves time!” NorthWestern Mental Health Clinician’s, September 2009
