Hospitals announce plans to share patient data

Three Ontario hospitals recently announced they are joining hands to share an implementation of Meditech’s latest electronic medical records system, called the Meditech Web EHR.

Markham Stouffville Hospital, in Markham, Ont., will host the system, and a single, shareable electronic health record will be created for patients at Markham Stouffville, Southlake Regional Health Centre, in Newmarket, Ont., and the Stevenson Memorial Hospital, in Alliston, Ont.

The new project is being called SHINE – short for Shared Health Information Network Exchange.
