Powassan and Area FHT wins Poster of Distinction award at HQT

October 27, 2016

Congratulations to Anna Gibson-Olajos and Meghan Peters, who were awarded Poster of Distinction at Health Quality Ontario's Health Quality Transformation conference on October 20, 2016. Their poster Because You Care: Using Your EMR Data to Save Lives tells the story of how D2D helped the Powassan and Area Family Health Team (PAAFHT) identify a serious issue in their data quality for colorectal cancer screening rates. PAAFHT was able to address this issue through a number of change ideas, which in turn had a significant impact on patient care. This story was also presented at the AFHTO 2016 Conference as a concurrent session.
