Acute care

This team is comprised of clinicians, support staff and information technology professionals from across VCH, PHSA and PHC.

The Acute Care team is responsible for the way in which acute care clinicians (allied and nursing) will experience the clinical information system. This includes electronic clinical documentation, orders, electronic medication administration records (eMARs) and medication reconciliation. The team is responsible for ensuring that these elements and functionality are validated for use by clinicians, and for recommending and validating the best possible workflow to integrate them into clinicians' daily routines.
