Health information management

The new clinical information system will allow clinicians to easily access complete and accurate information essential to patient care when necessary.

Patient health information will be assigned standardized codes to create structured data, based on the mandatory reporting requirements for the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) and the Ministry of Health. This data is used internally for decision-making, performance measurement and quality improvement; and externally for hospital funding, clinical research and national benchmarking.

“The CST project is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to design, build and implement a patient information system across three health organizations that, in my opinion, will deliver smarter and more timely health care information, resulting in better patient outcomes.” – Sylvia Melnyk, Team Manager, Health Information Management/Document Imaging, CST.
