Oversight of all EMR programs transition to Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care
On August 1, 2015, OntarioMD, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Ontario Medical Association, assumed responsibility for delivering new electronic medical records (EMR) programs and related services to physicians using certified EMRs. They will also continue to administer legacy EMR funding programs. Oversight for all EMR programs and services has now transitioned from eHealth Ontario to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
With eight out of 10 physicians now using an EMR in their practices, the transition reflects the maturity of the provincial EMR adoption program formerly funded by eHealth Ontario.
This transition also reflects the evolution of eHealth Ontario, now in the role of the province’s EHR service provider tasked with delivering high-quality, reliable services to all clinicians who use the EHR every day.
eHealth Ontario will continue to collaborate with OntarioMD and other stakeholders to enhance EMR use and its integration into the EHR by providing access to provincial assets, and helping physicians realize more benefits through advanced use of their EMRs.
Find out how community-based physicians and their patients are befitting from their EMRs.
