Toronto, July 17, 2009. eHealth Ontario and Infrastructure Ontario released a request for qualifications (RFQ) today to identify qualified companies to develop a chronic disease management system that will be used initially to establish a Diabetes Registry for Ontarians and an eHealth Portal framework.

In July 2008, the Government of Ontario launched a four-year comprehensive Diabetes Management Strategy to prevent, manage and treat diabetes. The strategy includes the online Diabetes Registry.

It is estimated that more than 900,000 Ontarians have diabetes – a number that continues to grow rapidly. The Diabetes Registry is an interactive, real-time, information system designed to track how well all patients in Ontario with diabetes are cared for against evidence-based guidelines. It will track the dates of service and provide lab results to assist clinicians and patients living with diabetes to reduce complications related to the disease.

RFQ submissions will be evaluated to pre-qualify teams with the experience, the qualified personnel and the financial strength to deliver a health care information technology project of this size and complexity. Pre-qualified teams will then be invited to respond to a request for proposals (RFP), expected to be released this fall.

eHealth Ontario is a new organization that plays the leading role in harnessing technology and innovation to improve patient care, safety, and access in support of the government’s health strategy. eHealth Ontario published the first eHealth strategy for Ontario in March 2009, which is focused on providing a comprehensive, patient focused, secure and private electronic system. eHealth Ontario will drive the transformation of Ontario’s health care system, building toward an electronic health record for all Ontarians by 2015.

Infrastructure Ontario is a Crown corporation dedicated to managing some of the province’s larger and more complex infrastructure renewal projects - ensuring they are delivered on time and on budget.
