The GPSC is hosting a series of webinars about data tools that can support physicians in their practices, and the development of patient medical homes and primary care networks.

Doctors and divisions are invited to participate in the first webinar on July 30, 2019 at 8am (Register), featuring the Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network Health’s (CPCSSN). Used by more than 1,200 physicians and involving two million patients across Canada, CPCSSN’s data tool enables the secure collection and reporting of EMR data.

Data from physician practices is key to taking a practice to the next level as a PMH, and enabling participation in team-based care and PCNs.

In practices, CPCSSN can support doctors to provide care to patients with chronic diseases and neurologic conditions, to undertaking panel management, and with ongoing quality improvement activities.

In communities, CPCSSN can provide aggregated community-level data to local divisions and the Ministry of Health to support PMH/PCN development and service planning.

The 90-minute webinar will demonstrate how the CPCSSN tool can help with:

  • Managing patient panels, including to securely extract and clean data, and to make the data available through the browser-based CPCSSN data display tool.
  • Optimizing EMR data to create regular reports, monitor recalls, keep panel data up-to-date, monitor panel size, and support quality improvement activities.
  • Using aggregated community-level EMR data to inform PMH/PCN service planning and decision-making.
