Health Sciences North Ambulatory Electronic Medical Record and HIS Connect

The North Eastern Ontario Network (NEON) represents a consortium of 22 hospitals and 3 independent health facilities serving the residents of north eastern Ontario with one Electronic Health Record (EHR).  NEON launched a series of projects focused on deploying and implementing a variety of electronic tools and systems including access to the Ontario Laboratory Information System (OLIS) to support a comprehensive Electronic Medical Record (EMR) at outpatient clinic point-of-care encounters across the Network. The evaluation report found that significant gains were achieved, including improved patient safety, clinic efficiencies and continuity of care across the organization.
