Barbara Carroll worked in a number of hospitals throughout BC and Ontario.  Her ten years in the Hospital Information Systems Department Kelowna General Hospital led to her designing training programs for every department.  She felt inefficiency was causing a lot of wastage, especially because of the lack of shared, integrated health information networks between care-providers between health regions and provincial/federal agencies.  “The challenge today is to have the automation and tools available to them to reduce duplication, improve timely communication, and documentation”.
