Island Health is switching to a new system of electronic medical records.

Nanaimo is the first to use I-Health, which will roll out across the rest of the Island over the next 10 years.

I-Health will be fully integrated at Nanaimo Regional General and Dufferin Place by June.

Suzanne Fox is the Executive Director of I-Health for Nanaimo and the surrounding area.

She says the system gives everyone involved a better understanding of a patient’s medical history.
