Understanding the benefits, or clinical value, digital health solutions provide
Evaluating benefits is an important component of the connecting South West Ontario (cSWO) Program that helps to support and demonstrate the realization of the health system benefits through the adoption of an electronic health record (EHR). The Analysis and Research (AR) Cases, listed below, capture the organizational value and clinical value that digital health solutions provide to patients who ultimately benefit from higher quality and better informed clinical decision making. We partnered with health service providers or users of available digital health solutions in the HNHB LHIN to capture their experiences via AR cases, enabling insights and best practice sharing with their peers and other health service providers across health sectors. This research does not include the use of any personal health information.
Learning how health service providers across health settings and sectors use digital health solutions to increase patient safety and quality of patient care
In order to effectively support the organizations who are deploying digital health solutions, we are including a link to Ontario’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) Privacy Toolkit, which contains key documents and templates, including sample privacy policies. These resources are useful for organizations who are assessing their privacy and security compliance, or who are updating their practices to comply with the ConnectingOntario EHR Privacy Policies’ requirements.
