ConnectMyHealth is different than other patient portals because it combines various types of health records created at hospitals you've been to in the Ontario Health West Region into one, consolidated view. Additional data sources, like community-based laboratories and radiology clinics, are expected to be added in the near future. ConnectMyHealth can be an ideal complement to in-person or virtual visits with your care providers by providing you easy access to your hospital records, and to additional functionality you may have through your local hospital, like appointment scheduling.
