ConnectingOntario is enabling province-wide information sharing by building and linking digital health systems, so that authorized clinicians, whether in a doctor’s office, community clinic or hospital can access their patients’ health digital health records anywhere, anytime.
Having rapid access to complete, up-to-date and accurate information puts clinicians in a better position to provide the best possible care.
There are three major regional partners in the ConnectingOntario program: one in the Greater Toronto Area, one in the South West, and one in the Northern and Eastern region.
Access to digital health records available through two clinical viewers
Authorized health care providers can view digital health records from across Ontario via two secure, web-based portals: the ConnectingOntario Clinical Viewer and the cSWO Clinical Connect clinical viewer.
Registered users have real-time access to their patients’ health information including: dispensed medications, lab reports, diagnostic imaging reports (e.g. X-rays), hospital discharge summaries,cardiovascular reports, neurophysiology reports, infection control information, respiratory reports, allergy information and emergency department reports.
