University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international
source for discovery, education and patient care.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community
and help others. At UHN, we welcome your contribution and offer different ways you can help so you can find one that suits you.
The Newsroom is the source for media looking for information about UHN or trying to connect with one
of our experts for an interview. It's also the place to find UHN media policies and catch up on our news stories, videos, media releases,
podcasts and more.
UHN is very close to the final phase of a process which will see us choose a new, integrated and comprehensive electronic patient record that will transform the way we work. This is exhilarating - and a bit unnerving - because we will be putting a new system in place throughout UHN – inpatient and ambulatory, while also working to fully integrate research interests as we go.
Hundreds of people at UHN have lent their time and expertise to help review proposals and attend product demonstrations from a variety of companies. Over the next few years, everyone at UHN will have a role to play in making this new system a reality and soon, about 150 people will be asked to step forward as part of the implementation team. When people see what the future looks like with a modern, fully integrated electronic system, the excitement is evident - as is the realization that this will be a huge, UHN-wide commitment.
The benefits as we see them:
In the next few weeks Human Resources will be putting the call out to all UHN employees about the opportunities on the implementation team. These people will be critical to UHN's success and they will help lead the way to this future state. HR is working on job descriptions and the process we will use to build our implementation team. We want our team to reflect the broad array of backgrounds and talents that make up our team because this group of people will be central to UHN's success in the future and our desire to provide all of our patients with the very best health care that we can envision.
