Using Primary Health Care EMR data for Quality Improvement: Stakeholder Voices
EEMR data in primary health care has been underutilized as a tool in measuring and improving quality of care in both practice and research. We have assembled a panel of four key stakeholders providing their perspective on primary health care EMR data use for quality improvement. An audience Q and A will be incorporated.

Dr. Sonny Cejic, a practicing clinician who has led the Records and Quality Improvement Committee at Western University, will speak from a Practitioner perspective. Along with using EMRs in his practice, Dr. Cejic has been involved in the DELPHI EMR project and can speak to how EMRs are used in practice for quality improvement and the future of this work.
Patient – Tracey Carr who has experience with EMRs (both with the physician/health care team and access to patient portal) while accessing health care for her family. Tracey will speak to how EMR/patient portal access affects quality of care and thoughts about how EMRs could be better utilized to assist with improvement in the quality of care patients receive.
Dr. Karen Tu, a researcher from the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES) will speak from a Researcher perspective. Dr. Tu has extensive experience in creating an EMR database (EMRALD) and conducting cutting edge research studies on EMR data and can provide a perspective on how EMR based research informing quality improvement works and how this process could be improved.
Dr. Joshua Tepper, President and CEO of Health Quality Ontario, and in active practice in primary care and emergency medicine, will speak from the Policy perspective regarding EMRs and their use at a policy level and potentially on how the EMR data could be better integrated with other sectors.

Workshop 1: Room: Linden
Primary Care measures at the sub-region level
Facilitated by Dr. Richard H. Glazier, ICES and Paul Huras, SE LHIN
This workshop will discuss planning and performance measurement for primary care at the sub-region level. Key issues for planning include understanding population health needs (such as mental health and addictions, seniors living alone, being unattached) and identifying gaps in service, attachment and inter-professional care. Performance measurement may include access, integration, patient and caregiver satisfaction, physician satisfaction, and health outcomes.

Workshop 2: Room: Cedar
Building Patient Engagement in your Research Proposal – The role of the patient partner across the research cycle

Facilitated by Alies Maybee and Simone Dahrouge
Learning objectives:
  • Understand how patient involvement in research can strengthen the relevance of the research and the grant competitiveness.
  • Appreciate the role of the patient partner at different steps across the research cycle, from proposal writing to knowledge dissemination.
  • Be aware of the resources that are available to help researchers and patients build effective partnerships in research.
  • Identify the appropriate tools to evaluate the success of the patient-researcher partnerships.
4:05 pm Time to complete Evaluation
