Our team at the eHealth Centre of Excellence is here to assist the primary care providers in your OHT with the adoption and integration of digital health tools that can support them to provide informed, integrated care to their mental health & addictions patient population.
Our Depression and Anxiety custom form supports clinicians in the screening and management of mental health. The form allows clinicians to gather, document and reference mental health metrics more efficiently at point of care. For those clinics who utilize tablets (see section below), this tool is compatible with the OCEAN platform.

There is also an EMR decision support tool to assist clinicans with appropriate opioid manangement.
As our survey results show, mental health assessments facilitate more honest responses from patients who may not be comfortable discussing details about their mental health in a face-to-face interaction.
|For the primary care provider, the assessments support a more comprehensive picture of the patient’s mental health condition, treatment goals, and potential risk for suicide – thereby ensuring that a safety plan for the patient is created where appropriate.|
