Insights4Care Turns Data into Better Patient Outcomes
More than 21,000 Ontario clinicians and their staff are using electronic medical records to deliver care to nearly 12 million Ontario patients. Clinicians know that data improves patient outcomes, but can lack capacity to unlock the quality data at their fingertips.
For busy clinicians, OntarioMD's (OMD) award-winning Insights4Care (i4C) Program saves time and resources in managing a busy practice by offering clinicians tools and direct support they can tap into to make practice improvements and unlock the value of their EMR data for better patient outcomes.
OMD's i4C Program offers the i4C Dashboard, an EMR-integrated, user-friendly and actionable population health management tool.
Practice improvement support is available to all users of certified EMRs, and is transforming health care delivery through digital health technology that is driving patient-centred care.

Unlock your EMR data to improve outcomes for patients.
OMD's user-friendly i4C Dashboard makes it easy to unlock patient data in your EMR.
Gain better insights about your patients using your real-time EMR data to generate reports on individual and population health using
30 indicators, which include chronic conditions such as diabetes and obesity.
Understanding your EMR data helps you to be proactive with your patients and leverage the data for better patient outcomes. The data can help you make improvements to the way you manage preventive care and chronic diseases.
With just a few clicks, the i4C Dashboard can:
- Display relevant EMR data in a quick, easy-to-scan graphic, allowing you to take action
- Scan for key indicators—such as diabetes, obesity, immunizations, prescribed opioid use, and smoking status—across your patient population and for individual patients
- Identify trends and compare population health within one clinic with other clinics that are also using the Dashboard
"I have found the OntarioMD i4C Dashboard to be a very helpful resource. With a few clicks, the Dashboard enables chart audits on my entire practice for many quality indicators."
