About eHealth Saskatchewan
eHealth Saskatchewan is a Treasury Board Crown Corporation comprised of many different business areas that all share the same overall mission to support and improve health care in Saskatchewan.
Our Information Technology (IT) team has been mandated by the Province to lead all IT services for the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA). eHealth is taking a provincially managed, locally delivered approach in setting up a single provincial IT service that supports the delivery of health care throughout the province.
eHealth also collects, combines, stores and manages the electronic health records of Saskatchewan people. We manage a variety of programs and services that give health care providers secure electronic access to important patient information, such as laboratory results, medical imaging reports, medications, immunizations, prescriptions and hospital visits, from anywhere in the province. Our vision: "empowering patients, and enabling care" is supported by our mission to get important electronic health information into the hands of patients and their health care team. Quick and easy access to health information means better overall care for patients.
Health Registries and Vital Statistics are also a part of eHealth. Residents can apply for, update or replace a Saskatchewan Health Card for insured health services and order birth, stillbirth, marriage, death and genealogy certificates. eHealth also processes applications for legal name changes and changes of sex designation.
Putting Patients First
Putting patients first also means that we are committed to making patients a crucial part of the decision-making process. Patients and family members are often invited to take part in workshops and other health-related events. The feedback we gather from those receiving care across this province makes a big difference in how we make decisions.
At the heart of this journey is our dedication to continuous improvement in order to carry out innovations. This approach allows us to create efficiencies, not only within our organization, but throughout the Saskatchewan health care system.
Privacy and Security
We are equally proud to have also developed a reputation among IT organizations nationally for our robust safeguards to ensure the privacy and security of personal health information.
eHealth applies this same standard of care when it comes to protecting the personal information we collect for Vital Statistics records and certificates.
We are committed to responding to the evolving needs for better and quicker information technology and management in the health care system.
