Clinical & Systems Transformation is preparing HIM sites at Vancouver Coastal Health, Provincial Health Services Authority and Providence Health Care to adopt new practices and technology.
The Clinical & Systems Transformation (CST) is a multi-year project designed to improve the safety, quality and consistency of patient care across three British Columbia health organizations: Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) and Providence Health Care (PHC).
CST will support the health organizations in establishing common clinical and process standards, including workflows, order sets, clinical guidelines, integrated plans of care and a common electronic health record.
This transformation will be supported by the implementation of a common clinical information system that will replace multiple aging existing systems.
Benefits for patients will include enhanced medication safety; an integrated approach with increased consistency of care; faster access to results and medication therapies; and less time repeating themselves during consultations or undergoing duplicate tests.
