From detailed guides to online courses – resources are available to provide you with the knowledge necessary to build and integrate EHR applications.


These are web sites that provide a single point of access to online services for a target group of users, aggregating information from multiple sources and presenting it as a unified whole. Standards-based web portals are a key delivery channel for sharing EHR information. 

The anticipated portal landscape will include portals serving user groups or aggregating similar content and services, such as:

  • Provincial and regional portals 
  • Special focus portals run by health care organizations with specific interests, such as Cardiac Care, Cancer Care Ontario
  • Provider-managed portals run by hospitals or other health care organizations
  • Consumer health portals for the general public to access their health information and services 

Individual portals are integrated into a federated, standards-based, province-wide structure, offering shared content and services to stakeholders. All ehealth portals will be technologically interoperable, able to use a province-wide authentication and authorization framework, and will follow taxonomy and component construction standards to simplify integration and content sharing.
