February 19, 2021 – Government of PEI: Prince Edward Island is one step closer to implementing a province-wide Electronic Medical Record solution (EMR). The province has selected TELUS Health as the EMR provider for PEI to give health care providers a powerful new tool to help manage how they care for their patients.
An EMR allows for safe and secure sharing of patient information between physician offices, hospitals, laboratories, and pharmacies providing a comprehensive digital view of a patient’s health history.
“By modernizing how we collect, share and use patient information in our physician and nurse practitioners’ offices, we can transform how we provide care to Islanders,” says Health and Wellness Minister Ernie Hudson.
“I am very pleased to see the provincial EMR solution move ahead and I look forward to seeing how it streamlines and enhances patient care in the province.”
