Benefits Evaluation Reports

Nova Scotia Personal Health Record Demonstration Project - Benefits Evaluation Report

The Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness undertook a two-year demonstration project to introduce a Personal Health Record (PHR) to the provincial health care system by implementing the RelayHealth PHR solution within the Capital Health district. The purpose of this benefits evaluation was to determine if there is a viable business case for the government of Nova Scotia to roll out the RelayHealth PHR solution province-wide. The findings reveal that a PHR can contribute to increased practice capacity providing more services to more patients and can support improved self-management for chronic conditions.
