Registered nurses using digital health records to enhance patient care

Sabrina Shiwpershad explains how having real-time access to patients’ digital health records helps provide better care.

Sabrina Shiwpershad, registered nurse at the Centre for Family Medicine, explains how having access to patients’ digital health records is helping provide better care and assessments.

Digital health records allows registered nurses like Sabrina to track hospitalizations, access various lab reports and diagnostic images, and view discharge plans created by physicians in the hospital. The ability to access this information in a timely manner ensures patients can be seen by their family physician and receive timely care within the 7-day timeline of them being discharged.
