Posted • Last updated


Open to Providence Health Care patient partners

Last updated

Providence Health Care is looking for partners to help create awareness materials for patients and their families regarding our upcoming go-live of our electronic health system, CST Cerner. The Clinical & Systems Transformation project supports Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) and Providence Health Care (PHC) in establishing common clinical and process standards, including workflows, order sets, clinical guidelines, integrated plans of care and a common electronic health record. This clinical transformation is being supported by the implementation of a new, shared clinical information system that will replace existing aging systems.

Together, we’re building a future where we’ll have the tools, information and processes we need to do our jobs better. For our patients, they’ll experience a more connected healthcare system and receive better, safer and more consistent care.

Partners will review the materials that were created for patients for the previous go-live at Lions Gate Hospital and evaluate what needs to change or be added to Providence’s materials to ensure patients and their families have all the information to feel informed, safe and part of the team during this

This opportunity is at the level of collaborate on the spectrum of engagement. The promise to you is that the health care partner will work together with you to formulate solutions and incorporate your advice and recommendations into the decisions to the maximum extent possible.

Participants should have some familiarity with Providence Health Care. No prior knowledge or experience of electronic health systems required.

Vacancies: 7

Tuesday, October 15, 11am – noon
