Toronto, ON – The quality of patient care we provide is significantly influenced by our clinical information system. The healthcare team relies on this tool to share essential information that is timely and accessible such as test results, physician orders and medication records. Nurses also collaborate with each patient and their families to develop Patient Care Summaries within this program to communicate a consistent and comprehensive care plan. This is used on a daily basis to communicate how a child is feeding, their growth patterns, the characteristics of seizures, completed tests and procedures, or precautions for infection control. We can share knowledge about a family’s beliefs, traditions and ways of coping, how to best manage a child’s pain, or how to maintain home routines in an unfamiliar environment. Digital health allows me to provide the best possible family-centred care.
