Saskatoon Sexual Health Launches Electronic Medical Records System

 

We are excited to announce that we are working to implement an Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system. This integrated technology replaces paper charts with electronic records and will streamline other functions such as managing prescriptions and tests. This has been a priority for Saskatoon Sexual Health for a number of years as we lack the storage space necessary to manage the number of current paper files and want to reduce our environmental impact.

We are confident that this new system will result in organizational efficiencies and we will be able to serve clients better.  However, it will take some time to convert the thousands of patient files and for all of our team to adapt to the new system and ways of doings things. Our goal is to have the system fully implemented by January 2019 with as little disruption to clinic operations as possible.

We ask for your patience and understanding during this transition as we get fully up to speed. In the meantime, if you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact our Executive Director, Heather Hale at director@saskatoonsh.ca.
