eHealth Centre of Excellence

Digital Health News

As the connecting South West Ontario (cSWO) Program Change Management and Adoption Delivery Partner (CM&A DP) for Waterloo Wellington, the eHealth Centre of Excellence has enjoyed a banner year!


  • We supported 100 per cent of hospitals across our region to gain access to the Digital Health Drug Repository (which includes Ontario Drug Benefit and Narcotics Monitoring System information) through the Home Meds view in the cSWO Regional Clinical Viewer, ClinicalConnect. Here’s Guelph General Hospital's Dr. Ian Digby speaking to CBC Radio Kitchener about his experience using this new enhancement to ClinicalConnect, which has improved access to real-time drug information.
  • A sub-set of primary care data is now available in the electronic health record in the Primary Care module of ClinicalConnect, for selected authorized users through a proof of concept initiative led by the eHealth Centre of Excellence, on behalf of the cSWO Program. Learn more the PCDS initiative here!
  • We’ve started the process of providing community pharmacists with access to ClinicalConnect.
  • 2017 has seen an unprecedented amount of community engagements, as we hosted a number of info-booths and drop-in training at hospitals and other healthcare organizations to promote the exciting new features available through the recent upgrade to ClinicalConnect.


For more provincial firsts from the cSWO Program, take a look at their December 2017 update!
