MyChart™: Now Available in South West Ontario

 

 

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: 

  1. Integrating data from ClinicalConnect™ with MyChart

  2. Deploying MyChart to patients in South West Ontario

Project Goal

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. 

Deployment & Adoption
