Epic CIS

On December 3, 2021, Lakeridge Health will come together with six partner hospital organizations in Central East Ontario to introduce Epic – a modern, computer-based system that will provide a single, unified personal health record for each patient. This effort represents the largest number of individual organizations across Ontario joining together to offer this safer and more seamless care experience.

News Release: Central East Ontario Hospitals Coming Together to Introduce Single, Unified Digital Health Record for Patients

In addition to Lakeridge Health, the new Epic clinical information system will go live at:

  • Campbellford Memorial Hospital
  • Haliburton Highlands Health Services
  • Northumberland Hills Hospital
  • Peterborough Regional Health Centre
  • Ross Memorial Hospital
  • Scarborough Health Network

Epic will vastly improve the way care is delivered in Durham Region and for the 1.5 million patients across Central East Ontario for generations to come by:

  • Empowering patients in their care journey through improved access to information and their care team.
  • Enabling care teams with a comprehensive view of the patient record and real-time access to patient information.
  • Enhancing clinical quality and safety through evidence-based standardized care and best practices.

 

A new patient portal for our community

The launch of Epic will also include a new MyChart Central East Ontario patient portal that is integrated with the Epic system. This secure, online portal will allow patients to access their medical records and personal health information. Patients can register for the new MyChart Central East Ontario patient portal beginning December 3, 2021 by visiting lakeridgehealth.on.ca/mychart.

Thank you for your patience during this transition!

As our team transitions to this faster, safer, and better way to deliver care, patients, and families may initially notice longer than usual wait times and some processes that are done differently. We appreciate your patience and understanding as our teams make this important change to serve you better.
