Integrating provincial EHR products and services into an EMR helps drive mature use by enabling clinicians to access relevant clinical data in the provision of patient care (e.g., HRM, OLIS, and eConsult). To continue to drive EMR maturity, OntarioMD works with provincial partners to offer EMR Integrated solutions. Only OntarioMD-Certified EMR Offerings are eligible to integrate into available provincial EHR products and services.
The table below lists all OntarioMD-Certified EMR Offerings and the corresponding integration to provincial EHR products and services. These integrations have been made available either through proof of concepts, pilots, or provincial deployment.
OntarioMD continues to work with EMR vendors to promote the integration of provincial EHR products and services into their EMR Offerings.
