Hamilton Health Sciences is pleased to partner with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, enabled by funding from Canada Health Infoway, to bring MyChart to citizens within south west Ontario. MyChart is the patient portal founded and operated by Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, and being utilized by over 20 partner sites across Ontario. The deployment of MyChart within south west Ontario represents the first regional consumer health solution deployment in Ontario. This product will allow patients to seamlessly access their health records from acute care facilities or Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) Home and Community Care Services, within south west Ontario, in which they have been treated. This will reduce barriers to care and will ultimately enable patients to become better partners in their health journey.
MyChart is being integrated with the regional clinical viewer for south west Ontario, ClinicalConnect™, which integrates data from 72 acute care hospitals, LHIN Home and Community Care Services and Regional Cancer Programs, as well as various provincial data repositories. At this time, data contained in provincial repositories held by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and operated by eHealth Ontario will not be integrated nor available to patients using MyChart.
