Electronic Health Records Electronic Health Records

An electronic health record (EHR) is a secure, integrated collection of a person’s encounters with the health care system; it provides a comprehensive digital view of a patient’s health history.

With support from Infoway, each province and territory is creating a network of interoperable EHR solutions — one that links clinics, hospitals, pharmacies and other points of care. EHRs will help improve Canadians' access to health services, enhance the quality and safety of care, and help the health care system become more efficient.
