eCHN is founded on the principle that up-to-date, accurate and comprehensive patient health information is vital to the process of medical decision-making. The key objective is to improve the quality of care delivered to children throughout Ontario's health facilities. eCHN is dedicated to its role as the preferred source of patient health information for Ontario's paediatric care providers.
eCHN's vision for the future is that its achievement will support and advance the development of a universal health record for the province. The remarkable utility of an integrated electronic record for the paediatric population has been demonstrated. eCHN now serves as the model for how to build a larger integrated health record for the entire population of Ontario.
