Doctors of BC believes any Health Information Management & Technology (Health IM/IT) system introduced in BC must: 

  • Support quality care and enable clinical excellence.
  • Support the one patient, one record principle. 
  • Ensure the physician voice is considered early and often on all IM/IT health care projects.
  • Support and enhance the patient role in health care. 
  • Ensure user input in Health IM/IT systems' design and governance. 
  • Incorporate continuous improvement and investment.
