Ontario Hospital eHealth Council website v2

Here’s a link to the revised Ontario Hospital eHealth Council website. The Ontario Hospital eHealth Council “was established to provide hospital industry leadership in eHealth and support the implementation of eHealth solutions which can improve health outcomes and the management and delivery of care across the entire health system”. This council represents the hospital sector in the broader eHealth Council as Ontario moves to implement eHealth at the provincial level.


On another note, a copy of the draft Ontario health privacy legislation is being circulated. This new legislation is to take effect 01 July 2004. There are a few specific implications for hospitals, but the legislation is still open for discussion. I’m sure that the health sector is working hard to comply with the new guidelines for protecting and maintaining people’s information private.
