Welcome to the North West LHIN's eHealth section. We hope you’ll find everything you need to know about eHealth. But before we go into the details, we need to know what eHealth is.
What is eHealth?
“The use of technology to improve patient health outcomes, increase accessibility to quality health care, and ensure the effective and efficient delivery of healthcare services - in a manner that protects patient/client privacy and security”
eHealth is a key enabler of systemic change in Ontario and holds the potential to enhance patient care, safety and access. It’s about harnessing the power of information technology and innovation to improve the delivery of health care for all patients and their providers.
eHealth is all about connections and relationships: patient to doctor, doctor to doctor, provider to provider, doctor to specialist, clinic to hospital, city to region.
We think that eHealth’s potential is limitless. It has the power to make health care more effective and efficient, the power to improve service to patients, and the power to make our health care system better.
