Draft EMR Specifications
The following EMR specifications are considered draft and expected to be used in future validation processes to support certification or specialist accreditation of an EMR offering.
Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) Guidelines
The zip files below contain guidelines provided by the MOHLTC which may be helpful to EMR vendors. Most guidelines are in Adobe Acrobat format. There is also an HTML file in each zip file listing links to additional online resources. Each zip file contains a text file that provides a listing of the latest document and link additions. Please check back regularly for updates.
Several functional requirements refer to MOHLTC Guidelines. Information required to meet these ministry-set guidelines are available through various sources including:
Ontario Regulation 114/94 (Medicine Act, 1991)
CPSO Medical Records Policy
