Dr. Allen Ausford we wanted to finalize around Treating Cancer
Taped Live from HIMSS 2018 trade show floor. Dr. Allen Ausford, practicing physician in Alberta discusses how health information exchanges have made a difference for a patient with cancer. Often patients see multiple specialist for different treatments, for something that happens outside of the hospital or clinic, or outside of hours of operation where do patients turn for information? Most of the time this information isn’t shared in a patients’ electronic records. In Netcare, treatment and medication information are visible. This helps to provide better paths of care for patients, better information sharing, and better access to that information.
