launched by the Canadian Medical Association

The Canadian Medical Association has launched a new health portal dubbed, which has online tools for tracking chronic diseases, as well as a physician-driven Canadian electronic patient health record platform.

The health portal allows patients to directly link to their physicians, and was developed by Ottawa-based Practice Solutions (a CMA company).

“The health portal provides a new way for physicians to give each patient the care and attention they deserve while also empowering patients to become active participants in their care,” said Brian Day, president of the CMA in a released statement.

The portal was designed by physicians and allows patients to be registered by their doctors with any of the online tools on the portal, including an asthma tracker and a personal health record.

The setup is similar to online banking in which the patient inputs their health information via the secure portal in order for their physician to access and monitor. The data is then converted into a chart that displays the patient’s results over time.
