Connected Health System

Care providers, administrative staff and patients will soon be able to access and share health data across the province in a secure and standardized way, like never before, thanks to the work underway to better connect our health system.

Everyone benefits when we are connected

Connected Health System initiatives will break down barriers to information sharing between primary care clinics, hospitals, community services and clinical systems. Here are a few of the key benefits made possible through province-wide connectivity:

  • Patients and caregivers will have better tools to communicate and share information with their care team.
  • Care providers will be able to access and share patient data more seamlessly, improving their ability to coordinate and deliver informed care. 
  • Administrative staff will benefit as manual workflows are replaced with digital tools and automated processes that reduce administrative burden.
  • Developers and IT staff will use a common standard for storing and sharing data, increasing reliability, security, performance and innovation.

Better access - better health care 

Work is underway on these projects to better connect our health system:

Digital Referrals & Orders

This provincial solution for managing referrals, order requisitions and advice requests reduces reliance on faxing, improving communication between care providers and patients.

Longitudinal Record Access

This provincial information gateway will enable clinical systems to "“talk to one another." Care providers can share patient information in a more secure and streamlined way.

Health Toolkit

This set of integrated tools and mobile applications will enable care providers and patients to interact with health information whenever and wherever they need it.

Patient Summary

This tool quickly generates a point-in-time summary using a standardized set of clinical and contextual details about a patient’s health and treatment history, informing providers of care needs.

Provider Services & Information Management

New policies and processes that will protect and maintain care provider, health service and clinic location data so that our provincial repository is always up to date.
