Shared Health Integrated Information Portal (SHIIP) 

As of April 2019, SHIIP, which previously stood for the South East Health Integrated Information Portal, had a name change to Shared Health Integrated Information Portal to better reflect the current state, growth and usage of SHIIP.

SHIIP is a portal-based technology solution that enhances individual patient care while providing real-time feedback and summarized data to help plan care. It has more than 650 registered users in the South East and Erie St. Clair LHIN communities.

SHIIP automates the identification of complex/high-needs patients, and generates patient risk scores to indicate the likelihood of hospital readmission or other health service needs. Through specific patient and provider matching, SHIIP makes this information available to providers who need to know while maintaining patient confidentiality.Some examples of the data that can be accessed by clinicians and other providers include: patient profiles, Health Link coordinated care plans, recent visits to hospital and health care activity taking place in the community. Work is under way to integrate home and community care data into SHIIP, with a projected release date in June 2019.

“SHIIP helps to break down siloes and barriers because it has information from across the continuum of care. It is intelligent. It’s the only tool that identifies at-risk patients.”
