WHAT IT IS
Panorama is an initiative to provide Ontario public health professionals with a comprehensive, secure, web-based information system to more efficiently manage immunization information, vaccine inventory, and cases and outbreaks of communicable diseases. Once fully implemented, Panorama will integrate the work of staff at all 36 health units, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), Ontario Government Pharmacy and Medical Supply Service, and Public Health Ontario.
The Panorama system is being implemented in Ontario in several phases. The first phase is to deploy two modules:
  • The Immunization module that keeps track of immunizations of school pupils, day care attendees, and those vaccinated at public health clinics; and
  • The Vaccine Inventory module that supports ordering publicly-funded vaccines from Ontario Government Pharmacy in Toronto and distributing these vaccines to local health care providers.
WHO USES IT
  • Public Health Nurses
