Synopsis: “Ontario is striving to achieve and maintain a high performing health system. With its emphasis on continuous quality improvement, the measurement and performance management needs of care providers, patients and system managers for readily accessible health information and relevant patient data are rapidly growing. Technology is no longer a limiting factor as Ontario seeks to connect its health institutions and points of health services delivery electronically. The aim of this connectivity is to ensure that current and historical patient data is available in a timely way anywhere it’s needed. The electronic health record helps to provide better care and better care management by physicians, nurses, allied health workers and system managers in a patient – centered environment. Leadership in this direction is strong today in Eastern Ontario.”
