OntarioMD (OMD) supports more than 20,000 clinicians with innovative digital health and quality improvement tools and advice on how to make them work best for you. We can help you get these complimentary tools connected to your electronic medical record (EMR) to align with your workflow so you can incorporate the patient data you need from different points of care and make administration and data management less onerous.
Our knowledgeable staff make it convenient and efficient for you to sign up for multiple digital health tools, depending on the EMR you use, during one visit. Tell us what you need, and we'll take it from there. If you need an EMR, we can help with that too.
We can sign you up and train you to use:
Digital Health Credentials / ONE® ID - A username and password from Ontario Health to access secure provincial digital health assets such as eConsult.
Drug Information - Securely access medications covered under the ODB program, drugs that are considered narcotics or controlled substances, as well as COVID-19 vaccination information and pharmacy services in the provincial Digital Health Drug Repository (DHDR) through your EMR in real time.
eForms - eForms automate form completion (e.g., the Ministry of Transportation's Driver Medical Review, aka "fitness to drive" form) and reduces your administrative burden. Instead of faxing forms, you can submit them electronically from your EMR. Completed forms will are delivered to your EMR through HRM®. Sixteen eForms are currently available in English and French.
Hospital Reports – Health Report Manager (HRM®) is an award-winning tool that improves communication among health care providers by securely delivering many report types, such as discharge summaries and COVID-19 vaccination reports, from hospitals and specialty clinics to your EMR. HRM's eNotification feature delivers real-time ADT messages from hospitals.
Lab Results - Access lab test results for your patients or perform patient queries in the Ontario Laboratories Information System (OLIS) from your EMR.
Population Health Management - Manage your patient population using your real-time EMR data with the Insights4Care (i4C) Dashboard.
Privacy & Security Training – Two comprehensive, CME-accredited, online learning modules give you and your authorized employees/agents up-to-date privacy security training on best practices and virtual care. Privacy and security training is recommended for the use of all provincial digital/virtual health tools.
Specialist Advice – eConsult through your EMR provides timely access to specialist advice and often eliminates the need to send patients for an in-person specialist visit.
