About CST

The Clinical & Systems Transformation (CST) project is designed to transform health care delivery systems and processes to improve the quality and consistency of the patient and caregiver experience.

CST will support Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) and Providence Health Care (PHC) in establishing common clinical and process standards, including workflows, order sets, clinical guidelines, integrated plans of care and a common electronic health record.

This clinical transformation will be supported by the implementation of a clinical information system that will replace existing aging systems.
