OntarioMD (OMD) Health Report Manager (HRM)
Bruyère has created new partnerships
with other Ontario health care organizations to allow for the secure transfer
of essential health information about you with authorized health care providers
involved in your care. Bruyère and the participating organizations continue to
follow all applicable health privacy laws to protect the privacy and confidentiality
of your personal health information.
Here is a brief description of the new
initiative that was recently implemented to reduce the existing process of
paper copies and faxes being sent to the clinician’s office and to ensure the timely
and secure electronic flow of your health information to the electronic health
record systems of your health care providers:
The HRM is an OntarioMD managed
application that enables hospitals to electronically transmit patient reports to
the clinician’s Electronic Medical Record (EMR) for inclusion in follow-up
care. Report types: https://www.ontariomd.ca/products-and-services/health-report-manager/sending-facilities
