Supported by a funding grant from NRC-IRAP & MITACS (Sauder School of Business)

Objective:

To measure the value of eHealth in the context of the Electronic Medical Record that exists in the Specialist and GP office

System Productivity Is there a relationship between use of EMRs and Wait Times? Using NPS (National Physician Survey) Data 2007 23,292 physicians surveyed (Specialist and GP) 16,179 – Use Paper Records 3,916 – Combination of EMR plus Paper 3,197 – Electronic Medical Records Findings: EMR based practices appear to have shorter wait times for Urgent referrals

Is there a relationship between use of EMRs and ability to accept new patients in primary care?

In 2008, there were up to 5 million Canadians who were unable to find a family doctor

Findings: EMR based GP practices appear to have greater capacity to accept new patients

System Throughput ~ Efficiency Is there a relationship between GP practices that use EMR alone and those that use EMR plus paper (mixed) in terms of system efficiency/throughput? NPS Survey 2007 (FP/GP) Use paper: 63.4% Used mixed: 19.4% Only EMR: 12.3% Not Reported: 4.9% N=4,724 physicians Findings: The mixed environment appears worse than paper records and worse than EMR
