Thanks a Billion
Last week the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation celebrated an extraordinary achievement, as it reached its goal of raising $1 billion. The Billion Dollar Challenge, launched on April 12, 2012 is the largest single fundraising campaign in Canadian health care and represents $500 million of philanthropic support and $500 million in research grants. With this support, we have been able to develop programs and build facilities such as the Guided Therapeutics Operation Room (GTX OR) and the tumour immunotherapy program, while expanding our research enterprise and building the Magnetic Resonance Guided Radiation Therapy (MRGRT) suite. These accomplishments are truly helping us to transform lives and communities.
myUHN – Patient Portal to launch this month
Empowering patients and their caregivers to feel connected to their care is an important way that we are living our primary value – putting the needs of patients first. Patients have told us they want real-time access to their health care information – 87% of patients surveyed told us they wanted their health record online – and we have listened. On January 30th we will be launching our patient portal, myUHN, across the organization. myUHN is a secure website that will enable patients and their caregivers to have access to:
This portal is an important tool that is improving confidence in the care we provide at UHN. Of patients surveyed 96% said they appreciate having real-time, online access to their health records. In addition, patients and staff have reported improved patient – provider relationships, which has positively impacted the patient experience at UHN. So I'm asking you to be supportive of patients and their caregivers in their use of myUHN to the greatest extent possible. To help, a list of frequently asked questions and clinical tools can be found
here, and you can see this incredible new technology in action
here. We want to ensure everyone is prepared for myUHN, so we are asking for your feedback in
this survey. By filling out this survey and sharing your questions and concerns, we can ensure the right supports, resources and training opportunities are in place as we rollout this exciting new technology.
