What is OLIS?


OLIS (Ontario Laboratories Information System) is a provincial repository for lab test results in Ontario, enabling healthcare providers to access patient lab data electronically. It serves as a centralized database that collects and stores laboratory test results from various sources, including hospitals, community laboratories, and public health laboratories.

By integrating with OLIS, YES EMR allows healthcare providers to access their patients’ lab results directly within the EMR system, without the need for manual retrieval or paper-based records. This integration streamlines the process of reviewing and interpreting lab results, ensuring that healthcare providers have access to the most up-to-date and comprehensive information when making clinical decisions.

With OLIS integration, healthcare providers can view lab results in a standardized format, reducing the risk of errors or misinterpretations. Additionally, OLIS enables seamless sharing of lab data among authorized healthcare professionals, facilitating better coordination and continuity of care, especially for patients receiving treatment from multiple providers or facilities.
