eNotifications are messages that are sent to Primary Care Providers and CCAC Care Coordinators to inform that the patient was:
- Discharged from the hospital’s emergency department
- Admitted to hospital as an in-patient
- Discharges from hospital as an in-patient
This near real time system allows for quicker follow up which can result in fewer hospital readmissions. In the North West LHIN, 13 hospital sites are contributing eNotifications to CCAC Case Workers through the OACCAC CHRIS system. In the future, eNotification will be delivered to Primary Care Providers by Hospital Report Manager (HRM) managed by Ontario MD.
