Webinar Wednesday – Retrofitting an EMR to Improve Team-Based Care, University of British Columbia

Jason Min, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia- Commercially available electronic medical records (EMRs) are physician-centric and not aligned with pharmacist logic or documentation needs for clinical and collaborative practice. Pharmacists in primary care increasingly rely on EMRs to support patient care. The Pharmacists Clinic team at the UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences has been working with a software specialist to design, build or modify, and implement new modules in the OSCAR EMR to address the needs of pharmacists and other interprofessional allied health members. The many clinical, administrative, and workflow lessons learned from a pharmacist perspective will be discussed.
