OntarioMD (OMD) Health Report Manager (HRM)

Bruyère has created new partnerships with other Ontario health care organizations to allow for the secure transfer of essential health information about you with authorized health care providers involved in your care. Bruyère and the participating organizations continue to follow all applicable health privacy laws to protect the privacy and confidentiality of your personal health information.

Here is a brief description of the new initiative that was recently implemented to reduce the existing process of paper copies and faxes being sent to the clinician’s office and to ensure the timely and secure electronic flow of your health information to the electronic health record systems of your health care providers:
