EMR-connected clinicians are accumulating a wealth of important data. They need the ability to easily view and interpret that data in real-time for better population health management, and to drill down to patient-level data to act on it at the point of care.
Insights4Care (i4C) Dashboard offers an EMR-integrated practice solution that meets these needs.
This actionable population health management tool:
- Gives clinicians
real-time visual representation of their EMR data using widely recognized primary care indicators, each representing different preventive care and chronic disease management focus points (diabetes test results, smoking status, etc.)
- Enables clinicians to drill down to patient-level data for each indicator and take immediate proactive steps to improve patient care
- Helps clinicians
standardize their data entry to improve the quality of patient data in their EMR
- Allows clinicians to trend their indicator over time
provincially scalable to all Ontario clinicians using an OMD-certified EMR

i4C Dashboard Indicators
The Dashboard is powered by a growing number of widely recognized and clinically valuable primary care indicators across five key categories:
Chronic Disease Management
Indicators to support management of patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension through standardized diagnosis coding and ensuring best-practice care guidelines are followed
Preventive Health Care
Indicators to support proactive follow-up for at-risk patients by identifying patients overdue for screenings, immunizations, or other interventions
Indicators to help identify potential practice data capture or workflow improvements to support more efficient practice management
Indicators to support best practice care guidelines for managing patient medications
Indicators to support physicians in meeting targets or requirements set by the province, Ontario Health or funders, or for claiming Cumulative Preventive Care Bonuses

i4C Indicator Release.

"The Insights4Care Dashboard is significant because it gives clinicians
real-time access to a
population view of the wealth of patient data they have collected in their EMRs for the first time. As clinicians, when we have the ability to drill down to patient-level data, we can identify trends, provide better follow-up and most importantly provide improved outcomes for our patients. Thank you to OntarioMD for driving digital health solutions further and leading the way to improved population health management through quality data."

"I have found the OntarioMD i4C Dashboard to be a very helpful resource. With a few clicks, the Dashboard
enables chart audits on my entire practice for many quality indicators. For example, I easily identified and generated a list of patients on chronic higher dose narcotics, and then worked with them to successfully reduce dosages."
— Dr. Meghan Davis, MD, FCFP
"The Dashboard has the potential to
provide critical information that will be required to coordinate integrated care services within Ontario Health Teams, as well as provide teams with a monitoring mechanism for quality assurance and improvement."

"The use of OntarioMD Dashboards has had a significant impact on my practice. The overall layout of the Outcomes Dashboard
enables the physician to see a universal and clear picture of their practice and identify areas that require attention. The Preventative Cancer Screenings Dashboard has been a valuable tool for my practice, where the percentage of overdue screenings is seen at a glance, and lists are populated easily to recall patients in a timely manner. Consequently, the
percentage of overdue screenings has significantly decreased ultimately providing better patient care."
