Learn about OntarioMD’s EMR Progress Assessment (EPA) tool and the support available to users of certified electronic medical records (EMRs) to improve EMR use. The EPA helps you identify opportunities and quick wins by measuring your current use and determining if you are using the EMR’s functionality to the fullest degree. You will also learn how the EPA leads to practical advice for closing any gaps you would like to address through the EMR Practice Enhancement Program. The session will also include an update on the EMR Physician Dashboard and its high-value provincial indicators.
OntarioMD’s EPA is the only comprehensive online tool in Ontario that can assess EMR use and is the starting point for the EMR Practice Enhancement Program. It is based on a nationally-recognized EMR Maturity Model and tailored to Ontario clinicians. The EPA is easy to use and accessible from anywhere with an Internet connection. Over 4,000 clinicians have used it to date. Regular use of the EPA has enabled these clinicians to measure how much they have improved and enhanced care through better use of their EMRs. The EPA also lets clinicians know where they stand compared to their peers.
