New Patient Search using Provincial Client Registry

We want to advise you that on December 3rd, the existing Client Selector portlet was replaced with the Patient Selector portlet.

What is affected?

Users of the eHealth Services application, Lab tab (used to view patient’s lab results).

eHealth Services

If you were using this portlet:

You will now see this one instead:

Take a look at the What’s New Video (3 min’s, SWF) and see the difference.

What does this mean to you?

It simply means that you now have more options when it comes to finding your patient. Instead of having to enter health card, date of birth and gender, you now have the option to search by health number, medical record number or name.

Why are we doing this?

The provincial client registry is now available for use, giving you access to a patient’s ‘golden record’. The golden record links a patient from multiple sources, such as the Registered Persons Database and Hospital ADT feeds.

When is this happening?

The change took place on Saturday, December 3, 2016.

Kind regards,
