The HITS eHealth Office is deploying Sunnybrook’s MyChart patient portal in South West Ontario so patients can securely access their electronic health records from participating healthcare sites in Ontario. The project, that had been funded by Canada Health Infoway, includes two key parts:
The project's goal was to connect ClinicalConnect, a widely-used provider-facing portal, with MyChart which was successfully completed in August 2018. With requisite agreements signed by contributing hospitals, health data flows through ClinicalConnect to MyChart.
For the most up to date list of sites where MyChart has been deployed in south west Ontario, please visit healthrecordsonline.ca/partner-sites.
Innovative digital solutions such as MyChart helps meet the growing expectations of patients and families looking for a seamless experience and more engagement in their care.
