One of our evolving projects – the discharge summary standard – will integrate into ConnectingOntario.
Electronically transferring hospital reports (including discharge summaries) to physician electronic medical record systems is one of the most frequent requests made by hospitals. That’s because the method provides clinicians with more secure and timely access to patient information. And, it enhances their decision-making capabilities which results in faster diagnoses and treatment plans for patients. It was created to expedite the sharing of discharge information.
The discharge summary standard supports transferring discharge summary information to and from various health care facilities to primary care providers.
