To What Extent is EMR Data Used for Performance Measurement in Canada?
European Commission-funded HealthPros doctoral fellow, Erica Barbazza, will present preliminary findings of a study exploring the current and potential use of primary health care EMR data for performance measurement across Canadian jurisdictions. The study – conducted in collaboration with the Canadian Institute for Health Information, University of Toronto and the HealthPros network – investigates current use cases of EMR data identified following a pan-Canadian scan and contextual considerations enabling quality of care uses of EMR data. The lecture will summarize key findings around the use cases explored and potential insights for jurisdictions at varied stages in optimizing EMR data for performance measurement, and discuss the implications of these findings for the information needs arising due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
