Online access to COVID-19 lab test results for Health Care Providers

If you are an authorized Ontario health care provider with access to one of the provincial viewers (ClinicalConnect™, ConnectingOntario ClinicalViewer and eHealth Portal) or an electronic medical record system (with OLIS to EMR) or Hospital Information System (with OLIS integration), you can access novel coronavirus (COVID-19) lab test results stored in Ontario Laboratories Information System (OLIS) in near real-time.

Accessing Your EHR

An electronic health record is a secure and private lifetime record of your health history. It gives your health care team, including family doctor, nurses, emergency room clinicians and specialists, real-time access to your relevant medical information, so they can provide the best care for you.  As a patient, you - or your substitute decision maker - have the right to access a copy of your personal health information. 

Currently, patients don’t have digital access to their EHR. Providing patients and their families with access to their digital health information is a priority for the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and we are working together to look at ways we can provide patient access electronically in the near future. Until that time, a printed copy of the information in your digital health record is available from the organizations listed below.

Because your digital health record is made up of information from a number of different organizations, you will need to contact them individually; processing times will vary.

Correcting information in your EHR

You – or your substitute decision maker – can request a correction to personal health information in your electronic health record if you believe it is inaccurate, out-of-date or incomplete. All requests for access or corrections to your personal health information should be directed to the health information custodian (e.g., your primary care provider or family physician) who originally collected the information, or who is directly involved in your care and treatment.
