Integrated electronic health record streamlines patient information during COVID-19 pandemic
On Vancouver Island, Canada, local health authority Island Health uses its integrated electronic health record (EHR) to help clinicians diagnose and treat patients efficiently while helping ensure patient and staff safety during its COVID-19 pandemic response.
