eHealth is a term we use to describe the use of information and clinical technologies in health care and is a key enabler of systemic change in Ontario. eHealth holds the potential to enhance patient care, safety and access.
The HNHB LHIN works closely with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, eHealth Ontario and other organizations to secure funding for eHealth initiatives that are most closely aligned with the LHIN’s local system goals as defined in the Integrated Health Service Plan 2013-16. The LHIN also supports the independent efforts of local health service providers by facilitating communication and collaboration between all partners.
Finding and implementing eHealth solutions that will help improve quality of care and equitable access to service while encouraging a more appropriate use of resources is a critical part of our plan to improve the health care system as a whole.
