ConnectingOntario ClinicalViewer is a secure, provincial electronic health
record (EHR) system that allows Ontario clinicians, and authorized members of
their health care teams, to access their patients’ personal health information
(e.g. lab results, diagnostic imaging reports, discharge summaries, details of
a prior visit to the emergency or other department). Access to the viewer is
restricted to those who provide or assist with patient care. The program is
funded and overseen by eHealth Ontario. For more information visite the ConnectingOntario website.
Continuing Care is a contributing organization and will provide its health care
providers with access to the provincial EHR through the ConnectingOntario
Clinical Viewer. This is done to improve the patient experience and ensure that
hospital patients receive the care that we would want for our loved ones.
Continuing Care, along with all other organizations participating in the
ConnectingOntario program, must follow all applicable health privacy laws
(including the Personal Health Information and Protection Act, 2004) as
well as the EHR privacy policies
have the right to block access to your personal health record in the viewer by
placing a consent directive (often referred to as a lock-box). It is best to
discuss the implications of placing a consent directive with a member of your
treatment team. Please note that a consent directive may be overridden with
your express consent, or in other circumstances permitted by law. For more
