ConnectMyHealth is a web-based digital health solution, operated by the HITS eHealth Office at Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS), that provides patients with the ability to view certain parts of their health records stored in the health information systems of participating healthcare facilities in Ontario (Data Contributing Facilities). Such health records are accessed on a real-time basis through another service operated by HHS called ClinicalConnect, whose purpose is to provide similar access to such health records by participating healthcare providers.
