South East Health Integrated Information Portal (SHIIP) 

SHIIP is a secure web-based portal that 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, facilitates the identification of complex/high-needs patients and helps inform clinical decisions and care planning. 

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. 

  • SHIIP was developed by the 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.
