​​​​​​​​​What is eH​​ealth?​


eHealth is the use of information and communication technologies to improve health and wellness. There are many eHealth tools that can support health services for First Nations communities. The following are current areas of focus at FNHA:

• Connectivity - Many eHealth tools need internet connections to work. How reliable this connection is affects the number of services that are accessible by many BC First Nations.

• Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) are electronic versions of paper medical files.  Giving those who provide care (e.g. doctors, nurses etc.) access to complete medical files through EMRs can improve care.

• Telehealth is the use of videoconferencing (live video) to deliver health and wellness services over long distances. For example, a patient at a local health centre can have an appointment with a specialist doctor at another location through telehealth. ​

• Panorama is the name of a software application that allows the Ministry of Health, regional health authorities and First Nations Health Service Organizations to easily share and manage public health information. Panorama is used across Canada.
