What is FEMS?
The Facility Engagement Management System (FEMS) is a web-based information system that provides overall business management support and function to the FEMS Initiative at both the site and provincial level. All sites with full funding status will use FEMS to support their facility engagement work.
What does FEMS?
• For physicians and allied health professionals, FEMS processes and tracks sessional claims for facility engagement activities, and collects feedback for evaluation purposes.
• For physician society executives and staff, FEMS supports the management, tracking, and reporting of engagement activities and fund usage, and exports financial transactions to the sites.
Why is FEMS being used?
At the individual physician level: Sessional claims can be paid electronically, allowing for faster processing times. For ease, claims can also be submitted and viewed through the mobile application of FEMS.
At the site level: FEMS will reduce the physician society’s administrative burden related to the
processing of claims, and assist in the management of engagement activities and funds.
For the Specialist Services Committee (SSC): FEMS allows for standardized electronic reporting
at several levels, and supports the provincial program evaluation.
