About three years ago, Vulcan Medical Clinic physicians and staff began taking a closer look at patients with hypertension and other chronic conditions after realizing their decade-old TELUS Health Solutions’ Wolf EMR could provide much more value than just record keeping, says Bridget Mueller, business coordinator at the clinic.
They sought the assistance of the Physician Office System Program (POSP) to arrange for advanced EMR training and peer to peer mentoring. POSP is the provincial program that provides funding and support to physicians to enable them to adopt EMRs.
