The electronic health system that was rolled out in Nanaimo in 2016 will be expanding to other facilities.
However, Minister of Health, Adrian Dix says first, the problems with the system will be fixed.
Dix has has released a report on a review of Island Health’s IHealth system and he says besides being overbudget, the implementation of the system presented challenges for staff that had nowhere to turn to when they needed support to deal with the system…..
Dix stopped short of saying Island Health is being stripped of their decision-making on the IHealth system, but described the Authority as one of the stakeholders in the review along with the various unions representing hospital employees, the public and physicians.
