Atlantic Chapter Virtual LinkUp: Implications to Open Clinical Notes

With a growing focus on patient engagement, healthcare continues to evolve practices and policies to involve patients. The US recently released federal rules mandating Open Notes: How long will it be before Canada implements a similar program? Questions to be explored at the Atlantic Chapter LinkUp  will include:

  • Major CIS vendors will begin to implement this functionality. Do you think Canadian organizations will jump on board to use it?
  • How do we prepare as healthcare organizations for open clinical notes? 
  • How do we prepare patients? 
  • What are the challenges and implications in Canada?
