EMR Success in the Northwest Territories

In 2011, the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) engaged Sierra Systems to assist with the selection and deployment of an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solution for its 33 primary care clinic sites.

Sierra Systems resources worked closely with the GNWT team to select the vendor, negotiate the contracts, identify enhancements, install the application, develop operations standards, lead the implementations, and manage the overall change

January 2017, saw the successful deployment of the EMR to 60 program areas across 11 different sites.

Work continues on the EMR initiative and plans are in place to continue deployments to the remaining sites. The benefits to patient care and outcomes have been noticeable as have efficiencies in privacy and management of information. As the video shows, participating in successful solutions such as this reminds us of the important and positive differences we can bring about to our communities.
