What is eHealth?

eHealth is a term we use to describe the application  of information and clinical technologies to health care, and acts as  a key enabler of systemic change in Ontario.

eHealth harnesses the power of information and technology to improve patient care & safety and  enable information access across the health care continuum.

Engaging with and supporting a number of governance committees (e.g. eHealth Steering Committee, IM/IT Advisory Committee) we focus on the Provincial and LHIN's clinical and foundational priorities.
