Clinical reporting in primary care settings is predominantly paper driven. Meanwhile, hospitals and acute care settings are working with a combined paper and electronic system. Canada Health Infoway has created an Electronic Health Record (EHR) blueprint architecture as the infostructure foundation to guide Canada’s eHealth agenda. It is no longer a question of whether electronic health records will be implemented for all patients in Canada. Rather, it is a question of when and how, to what level of detail and how to access the information? This tutorial provides an in-depth review of the EHR ecosystem, providing details across several facets including, a current status of clinical reporting systems, the elements of the electronic health record, an international perspective, an overview of vendors and offerings, as well as an overview to the Lakehead’s group research on EHRs.
