Ontario Laboratories Information System (OLIS) is an information system that consolidates patient test information from all labs across Ontario. OLIS results are now available in the Lab module of ClinicalConnect, a regional clinical viewer that provides personal health information for patients who have been registered at any hospital in South West Ontario, including their historical data.
Family physicians practicing in Local Health Information Networks (LHINs) 1 to 4 (South West Ontario) are invited to provide feedback about their experiences with OLIS lab results in a 10-minute online survey.
The study seeks to determine the value of OLIS in physician decision-making and whether it could be improved in any way. Physicians who have not used OLIS data are invited to provide their opinions about their current system and whether OLIS results might be of use to them. (Please register here to access ClinicalConnect.)
The study is being conducted by independent investigators, Dr. Rob Lloyd, Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics, McMaster University and Medical Director of Clinical Informatics, Hamilton Health Sciences and Dr. Norm Archer, Professor Emeritus, McMaster University.
If there are more than 250 survey responses, there will be a draw for $500 to be won by a participating physician. Valid entries will be accepted from South West Ontario family physicians until February 13, 2017.
