COVID-19 vaccine documentation bot



The eCE Automates team at the eHealth Centre of Excellence has launched a new process for our bot, Bernie, that will help primary care clinicians to seamlessly and efficiently document their patients’ COVID-19 vaccinations within their electronic medical records (EMRs).


We’re here to support you during this challenging time and are offering this virtual assistant at no cost to you or your clinic.


Click here to get started!



  • Ensures your patients’ immunization records are up-to-date
  • Replaces a tedious and time-consuming manual process
  • Enables you to place your focus where it needs to be – on delivering high quality patient care



OntarioMD's Health Report Manager (HRM) is now delivering COVID-19 vaccination reports to primary care clinicians using certified EMRs. For more on HRM, please visit the OntarioMD website.


The bot runs a list of searches/algorithms to produce a list of patients, and then opens the record for each patient on the list. Bernie then locates the patient’s HRM COVaxON vaccination report in the patient's chart, confirms COVID-19 vaccine details and automatically updates the CPP immunization section of the patient’s chart.


For a more detailed description of how this works, please refer to our FAQ

Now Available: New EMR vaccine eligibility search for third dose


Although two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine provides strong protection against the virus, a third dose may be required for those patients with an increased risk of infection. On August 17, the province released a list of vulnerable populations who are eligible for a third dose, which include transplant recipients, patients with hematological cancers, recipients of an anti-CD20 agent and more.



COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Search

Our newest EMR vaccine eligibility search will help primary care clinicians to quickly identify patients from their ambulatory roster who may be eligible. This search is being updated in line with the rapidly changing criteria on a regular basis. 


You can access the search (for TELUS) by downloading it directly from our community portal. Note: This  search will also be available for OSCAR and Accuro EMRs soon.
