Department of Health
The Innovation and eHealth branch of the Department of Health is responsible for overall alignment and integration of innovative eHealth and Digital Health services to achieve optimal health system performance. Digital Health solutions focus on quality care for all citizens of New Brunswick and promote clinical value in the delivery of eHealth solutions to clinicians and administrators within the health system. The vision is to create clinical value through digital health solutions and improve access to care by providing standardized, up to date and relevant health information.
Access to Personal Health Record (MyHealthNB)
New Brunswick has recently launched a Proof of Concept to support a provincial Digital ID, as part of this initiative it was decided that providing a citizen (Diabetic Patients) access to their lab information would be the first health application launched by New Brunswick. The proof of concept is coming to a close and it is critical to mobilize key resources to support the requirements of a pre-production pilot that will consist of all Laboratory Information, Medication Profile(s), and Diagnostic Imaging Reports. In parallel, Canada Health Infoway (Infoway) is planning for a national ACCESS Gateway (Gateway) as part of the ACCESS Health initiative (ACCESS). ACCESS is an ambitious initiative creating framework for a trusted national ecosystem that will help to connect Canadian citizens with their health information and the digital health services available to them in their respective jurisdictions. The Department of Health has partnered with Infoway on this endeavor and will be working closely with them over the course of this engagement.
Canada Health Infoway is working with Health Canada, the provinces and territories, and industry stakeholders to develop, operate and maintain the national e-prescribing service known as PrescribeIT™. PrescribeIT™ will serve all Canadians, pharmacies and prescribers and provide safer and more effective medication management by enabling prescribers to transmit a prescription electronically between a prescriber’s electronic medical record (EMR) and the pharmacy management system (PMS) of a patient’s pharmacy of choice. PrescribeIT™ will protect Canadians’ personal health information from being sold or used for commercial activities. The Department of Health has endorsed this initiative and is working with Infoway to plan for integration with the Drug Information System (eHealthNB).
The Addictions and Mental Health (AMH) branch works closely with the Regional Health Authorities in the operational delivery of programs and services. It is extremely important the Innovation and eHealth branch support MH/A throughout the eMental Health opportunity. The project team will help capture specific program information and how this programing will support and align with the concept of scaling out current jurisdictional solutions in partnership with Canada Health Infoway.
These initiatives will combine concepts of agile development, anytime/anywhere, secure information sharing and empowering citizens to access their health information, services that support the delivery of eMental Health services. This project will build on innovative methods to continuously improve our ability to quickly provide GNB’s citizens access to their information when they want it or appropriate services when they need it. In addition to the above mentioned initiative, the resource may be called on to support other digital health initiatives underway within the Innovation and eHealth Portfolio of Projects.
These initiatives support the Department of Health Strategy, as well as the objectives of the Digital New Brunswick Strategy to support and enable citizen access to health information in the most efficient and effective manner using digital health solutions and services.
