Scarborough Health Network (SHN) is partnering with six other hospital organizations, together representing 14 hospitals in Ontario’s Central East region, to deliver a new, digital clinical information system (CIS). Once implemented, each of the 1.5 million people in the central east region who receive hospital care will have a single, unified personal health record across the partner hospitals. Epic will go live for all seven partner organizations on December 3, 2021.

What does this mean for patients and families?

For the first time in Central East Ontario, patients and their entire care teams will have real-time access to each patient’s health information in one place. Patients will be able to view their personal health information and upcoming appointments through a free, user-friendly, secure portal called Central East MyChart.

The Epic system brings your care team timelier access to information to support clinical decision-making, including test results, medication information, and other essential health information. New features like barcode identity validation at the bedside mean your safety is our top priority, while less duplication and more efficient processes contribute to a more sustainable health system.
