The Shared Care Committee (joint committee of the Doctors of BC and the Ministry of Health) and Providence Health Care are in partnership to focus on communication between specialists and family physicians.
A pilot program scheduled to begin on March 2, 2015 will push notification from Sunrise Clinical Manager to family phyisicians indicating when a patient of theirs has been admitted to acute care at St. Paul's, Mount Saint Joseph or Holy Family (rehab) hospital and also if they have a patient who has died while at one of these hospitals.
Physicians are encouraged to then fax back any information that might assist in the care of their patient and indicate if and how they would like to be involved in care.
