CST PODCAST: Make a listening appointment, The Doctors Are In
Are you curious what it’s like to flip the switch and go live with a clinical information system? Then make an appointment to listen to this new CST audio podcast.
In The Doctors Are In, the CST Audio Network’s debut podcast, Dr. Eric Grafstein – CST’s Chief Medical Information Officer for VCH/PHC – talks to physicians from Canadian hospitals that have successfully made the jump over to a new clinical information system.
In this episode, Dr. Grafstein is joined by CMIO Dr. Geoff Heseltine from Ontario’s Cornwall Community Hospital for a candid discussion on Cornwall’s go-live experiences, including how they got ready and how things changed.
This seven-minute conversation is the first of three parts. In next week’s episode Dr. Grafstein and Dr. Heseltine talk about the “valley of despair” involved with adapting to a new system and how productivity was impacted after go-live.

The Clinical & Systems Transformation (CST) project is a joint initiative of three health organizations: Vancouver Coastal Health, Provincial Health Services Authority and Providence Health Care. The project is designed to improve the safety, quality and consistency of patient care. The transformation will be supported by the implementation of a shared clinical information system that will replace aging existing systems.
