Videoconferencing for telehealth: Unexpected challenges and unprecedented opportunities | BC Medical Journal

Videoconferencing can help rural physicians gain access to quality continuing medical education and continuing professional development. It can also provide for peer-to-peer consultation and communication. There are unique advantages and challenges that presenters and facilitators using videoconferencing need to be aware of to maximize this interactive learning opportunity. There are also advantages and challenges to three current approaches to videoconference-based peer-to-peer consultation. Through telehealth initiatives that effectively use vidoeconferencing, rural physicians and patients alike can overcome geographic isolation and benefit from a considerable and well-deserved increase in access to CME and a wider spectrum of health services.

Zedmed ready to roll with PCEHR-compatible software

Clinical software company Zedmed has achieved its conformance certificate to interface with the PCEHR and is gearing up to roll the capability out to the practices of early adopters shortly.

Zedmed received notification that it had passed its Conformance, Compliance and Accreditation (CCA) certificate to both view the PCEHR and to upload shared health summaries this week, Zedmed business analyst Jane Blakeley told Pulse+IT.

“We believe that we are the first GP desktop software vendor to have completed that testing,” Ms Blakeley said. “Users can view, upload and download documents, so basically that gives you full access to the PCEHR directly through Zedmed and you don't need any other third-party software.”

Ms Blakeley said Zedmed would have full capability for users to meet the new requirements for the eHealth Practice Incentive Program (ePIP), which will come into full effect next May.

To qualify for the ePIP, practices will need to show that they have the capability to interface with the Healthcare Identifier (HI) Service to download patient IHIs as well as search for and validate Healthcare Provider Identifier – Organisation (HPI-O) and Healthcare Provider Identifier – Individual (HPI-I) numbers.
