South East Health Integrated Information Portal (SHIIP)
The South East Health Integrated Information Portal (SHIIP), is a secure web-based portal which enables health care providers to share patient data in real time, or near real-time, including hospital emergency room and acute care visits. The Portal incorporates and connects information from existing technology assets, facilitating in the identification of complex/high-needs patients, helping to inform clinical decision and care planning to enhance patient experience.
SHIIP increases system productivity with improved access to coordinated care and ease of transitions between providers for patients, eliminating duplicated tasks and the number of forms required for clinician(s) to complete.
Drivers of SHIIP were identified by a need for a system that can:
- Support the technology objectives of Health Links.
- Link patient activity across multiple sectors in real time or near real time.
- Evaluate and report on key provincial and regional integration indicators.
Key benefits of SHIIP have been identified for patients, providers, and the health care system overall.
