The Evolution of a Health Information Brokering Service in the Province of British Columbia

Don Henkelman

Abstract

The Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) is implementing a health information brokering service in the province of British Columbia. This brokering service (called the Clinical Broker) is based upon the experienced gained by the B.C. Cancer Agency (BCCA) in the creation of its Electronic Health Record (EHR) for cancer care. The brokering service will initially focus on an operational need for information exchange between healthcare providers. Over time, it will be extended to include more complex healthcare services, such as results query, appointment booking and clinical decision support.
