PrescribeITTM is engaging with its stakeholders to foster meaningful contribution to positively shape the future development and implementation of the service.
To support this, Canada Health Infoway (Infoway) adopted an innovative governance structure that ensures its stakeholders are involved in shaping the service’s growth and evolution.
Engagement will take many forms – from ongoing collaboration through working groups and task forces, to broad public consultation. This mechanism for input will enable PrescribeITTM to deliver the highest quality product and service for all Canadians, prescribers, pharmacists and pharmacies.
PrescribeITTM’s national service governance stucture includes:
PrescribeITTM Strategy and Industry Alliances Committee of the Infoway Board of Directors
PrescribeITTM is accountable to Infoway’s Board of Directors under the corporate governance structure.
A PrescribeITTM Strategy and Industry Alliances Committee of the Infoway Board (the Committee) was developed to assist the Board in its oversight of the strategic development and evolution of PrescribeITTM. Members of the Committee have been appointed by the Infoway Board.
PrescribeITTM Working Groups
To support the deliberations of the Committee by providing a broadened stakeholder perspective, five national Working Groups have been convened in key strategic areas. The Working Groups have a mandate to identify opportunities and challenges and to advance recommendations to the PrescribeITTM Secretariat regarding how they can best be addressed.
Membership was fulfilled through a stakeholder nomination process, and will continue to evolve to meet the needs of the group.
The five working groups are: Continuous Improvement, Growth and Development, Implementation, Opioid, and Technology and Interoperability.
PrescribeITTM Task Forces
Task forces for a single mandate issue or subject matter expertise are activated as needed by PrescribeITTM or Working Groups.
