Provision of immediate access to accurate, pertinent, satisfactorily comprehensive clinical information in a dependable and cost-effective manner has long been an elusive goal. Attempts to implement shared record systems (both summary record systems and comprehensive record systems) have proved extraordinarily challenging. However, the Virtual Health Record (VHR) is an entirely new approach to patient information sharing. It is based upon linked regional implementations of a new technology. The methodology commences with a consensus building process amongst providers to determine what information is shared and how it is to be shared? VHR lends itself to an incremental approach to implementation.
Now being implemented in its second and third regions, the Virtual Health Record system is gradually being expanded as the technology and support systems are bedded in and the clinicians across each region learn to trust one another and work closely together to deliver a highly functional and reliable method of communication.
The Virtual Health Record is proving to be a viable method for sharing information across the healthcare ecosystem.
