eDOCSNL is the provincial electronic medical record (EMR) program for physicians jointly governed by the NLMA, the Department of Health and the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information, to deliver and manage EMRs in the province. Powered by TELUS Health, the Med Access solution is a computer-based patient medical record designed for physicians’ practices. 

Med Access will manage patient information previously stored and recorded in paper files or another EMR. The eDOCSNL program adds value to Med Access product by including demographics, medical and drug history, laboratory results and diagnostic imaging. It will also help to manage a physician’s billing and scheduling activities. eDOCSNL also assists physicians and their staff to prepare for the installation, and manages the relationship with the vendor. The goal is to ensure that eDOCSNL is a sustainable provincial solution developed by physicians, for physicians.

The program is now accepting expressions of interest from members interested in incorporating the new EMR program in their practice. eDOCSNL will work with your clinic to complete a readiness assessment, identify priorities and assist with the transition.
