3 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 Infoways 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 Canadas 14 federal, provincial and territorial Deputy Ministers of Health.

4 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. 4 © 2006 Canada Health Infoway Inc.

5 The EHR is a Key to a Renewed Health System! EHR solutions provide an opportunity to Improve the quality, safety, accessibility and timeliness of care for Canadians Support more informed healthcare decision making, research and management Improve the efficiency of the healthcare system and reduce costly duplication Maximize return on IT investments Achieve standards based solution allowing interoperability 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 8 Clients/Patients EHR: How Do We Do This? Sharing Information From Multiple Systems Pharmacy Laboratory Diagnostic Hospital Emergency Homecare Community Care Center Clinic Emergency Services Specialist Clinic INTEGRATED VIEW

9 © 2006 Canada Health Infoway Inc. 9 Methods of Sharing EHR Information The Big Database in the Sky All Point-of-Service (POS) systems share same data store Broadcast to all or a logical subset of systems Replication of data from one system to all other relevant/ participating POS systems Every POS system holds same information The Big Index in the Sky EHR Index or locator service that holds links to all POS systems where information resides Each POS system interfaces to other systems Use of a shared reference information source POS systems populate it POS systems or viewers reference it External to the operational store

11 EHR Infostructure 11 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.

22 22 Infoways role is to set standards and requirements for robust, interoperable products and outcomes 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 replication 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

23 © 2006 Canada Health Infoway Inc. 23 Principles for Establishing Pan-Canadian EHRS Standards Infoway has created Principles for Establishing pan-Canadian EHRS Standards to provide guidance in the adoption of standards-based solutions 11 Principles – accessible via the Infoway Knowledge Way Business-driven Adoption of existing standards where ever possible HL7 V3 for all new message development Establishment of pan-Canadian EHR standards is coordinated via an open, transparent and inclusive Stakeholder Collaboration Process as defined by our stakeholders

24 © 2006 Canada Health Infoway Inc. 24 Standards Collaboration Process (SCP) The EHR Standards Steering Committee which leads and approves pan-Canadian EHR information standards within the context of Infoway investment programs The EHR Standards Advisory Committee which recommends information standards for approval by the EHR Standards Steering Committee and coordinates and guides the activities of pan-Canadian Standards Groups A number of pan-Canadian Standards Groups that guide the standards requirements of individual Infoway programs An expert group of resources available to provide cross-program technical and subject matter expertise in standards
