OntarioMD Communities of Practice

On April 1, 2020, the former AFHTO EMR Communities of Practice (CoPs) transitioned to OntarioMD.  These communities were created to bring together EMR users and vendors to work together to leverage their collective wisdom to improve access to, and use of, EMRs and digital health tools. 

Members of the individual communities, vendor representatives, and OntarioMD staff meet bi-monthly or quarterly to:

  • Exchange ideas, knowledge, and information
  • Provide mutual support
  • Review new tools, products, and best practices.
  • Explore solutions and potential areas for improvement

OntarioMD currently facilitates four EMR Communities of Practice:

P&PP&P Data SystemsQuarterly
Accuro®
QHR TechnologiesQuarterly

EMR Community of Practice Membership

The EMR CoPs welcome the participation of all OntarioMD-certified EMR product users, as well as staff from EMR vendors, and other external partners. Membership in the CoPs is voluntary. Participants will not receive financial compensation for their time. All CoP members are equal; their knowledge, opinions, and input are equally valued and respected. 

CoPs do not replace or substitute any current training or support processes in place by EMR vendors.

To join a CoP, please fill in the short membership application form.
