Electronic Patient Record (EPR) – Project Connect
When Unity Health Toronto established our first strategic plan in 2019, we committed to transforming our digital and physical infrastructure to provide the best care experiences for our patients, families and community members. A key step in this work is planning and implementing a network-wide electronic patient record (EPR) system that supports multiple care environments, from home to hospital and community.
EPR is named Project Connect
EPR will enable Unity Health to have an integrated health care system so our team of physicians, staff, and learners can share information, working closely together to ensure each patient receives the best care experiences possible across the entire spectrum of their health care journey. We named EPR, Project Connect. Please watch our video below:
