What is it?


eHealth Ontario has built a suite of web-based applications, called eHealth Services (eHS). eHS offers authorized clinicians with access to Ontario’s provincial data repositories, allowing them to search and view information about patients in their care. Having more comprehensive access to a patient’s medical history, such as lab test results and diagnostic images and reports, helps providers to make timelier, better informed treatment decisions and improve patient care. eHS also includes a provider registry, allowing providers to search and locate other providers (to make a referral, for example) quickly and easily.
