In line with the recent CST Cerner system roll out at PHSA’s BC Cancer – Vancouver, new functionality was added for providers to receive notifications of their patient’s lab results from most labs in the province. This is a first for B.C. because, while provincial lab results are viewable in CareConnect, no other clinical information system is integrating labs information at this level for comprehensive, near-real time access. It means that patients who attend Vancouver centre, and soon other facilities using CST Cerner, can expect a better experience because their care team has access to a more complete patient record. CST Cerner is currently being rolled out across more than 40 facilities across VCH, PHSA and PHC.
