Member Case Study: Optimizing Interprofessional Resources & Spreading Access to Teams

AFHTO Members Expanding Access Within Their Communities As government implements the vision of Patients First, the creation of sub-LHIN regions will enable a shift to a population-based approach to health care planning and delivery. It is hoped through these system-level changes patients will receive more timely access to, and better integration of, primary care, and better coordination and continuity of services.

EMR Communities of Practice: Increasing Quality and Access to EMR Data

Access to data in primary care is difficult, largely because the quality of data in Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) is poor. While it is important to improve the quality of data going into EMRs, it is also worthwhile to get better at using the data and systems as they are. Over 30 Quality Improvement Decision Support Specialists (QIDSS) are dispersed across the province to help members access and use data better to improve care, supported by our Quality Improvement in Primary Care Community of Practice.
