  4. 4. What is PIN? What is PIN? tool that: An information sharing 8 links community physicians, pharmacists, hospitals and other authorized health care providers 8 provides online decision-support tools for prescribing, dispensing, compliance monitoring, research and policy development. 8 communicates with existing physician office and pharmacy systems, avoiding duplication of data entry. 8 will ultimately enable electronic prescriptions, providing further benefits to health care providers and patients alike.

  5. 5. PIN is conceptually simple How is PIN delivered? 8 Central clinical data repository 8 No duplicate data entry 8 Links existing heterogeneous systems Central Clinical Data Repository 8Via a web browser 8System-to-system March 1, 2004 5 Alberta Health and Wellness
  6. 6. PIN Pilot Profile 8 Implemented in 18 sites in two communities (Westlock & Leduc) in 2002 – 12,119 prescriptions were recorded by 34 physicians – 5,399 drug profiles were accessed by 154 users 8 Results of pilot evaluation were positive – 90% of pilot users believe that PIN is valuable to their delivery of care (7% undecided, 3% disagree) – 80% of pilot physicians would recommend PIN to their peers (20% not yet decided) – Extended pilot Seniors Drug Profile Pharmaceutical Information Network EHR SDP Rollout SDP PILOT PIN PILOT 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 March 1, 2004 6 Alberta Health and Wellness
  7. 7. Things we learned: 8 Collection of explicit consent for purposes of care and treatment is challenging to explain and administratively burdensome (i.e. less than 1 % of the population decided to opt out) 8 Implementation elapsed time is most influenced by site readiness 8 Sell to clinicians first then to administrators 8 Need to do individual site assessments as sites have unique work flows 8 Voluntary participation impacts take-up however improves clinician ‘buy-in” over time March 1, 2004 7 Alberta Health and Wellness
