North Ottawa Community Health System focuses on coordinated patient care

North Ottawa Community Health System participates in Great Lakes Health Connect, the state’s largest Health Information Organization. The goal of Great Lakes Health Connect is to provide fast and secure exchange of test results and reports among hospitals, labs, x-ray facilities, and doctors statewide.

North Ottawa Community Health System has engaged with several Electronic Health Record vendors to provide physicians electronic access to patient data via Great Lakes Health Connect across the state. This enables safer, more coordinated patient care.
