On Saturday, May 14, Sechelt Hospital and related Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) facilities on the Sunshine Coast will go live on CST Cerner and begin providing patient care as part of the Clinical & Systems Transformation (CST) project.
Sechelt Hospital, including Totem Lodge, Shorncliffe Intermediate Care Home and Sumac Place, will be switching from using old systems and paper-based charts to a shared electronic health records system to improve the safety, quality and consistency of care for patients. The Sechelt Community Dialysis Unit (CDU), operated by Providence Health Care, will join CST Cerner on Monday, May 16.
When the switch is flipped, these sites will share the system with more than 28,000 care providers across more than 30 Providence Health Care, VCH and Provincial Health Services Authority sites, enabling our patients’ electronic health records to follow them seamlessly.
Congratulations to our Coastal colleagues for all their hard work leading up to go-live – we look forward to welcoming you on board the system!
