Ontario Lab Information System – OLIS

The South Huron Hospital (SHH) is a proud member of the Ontario Laboratory Information System (OLIS). OLIS is a secure information system that allows health care providers (hospitals, community laboratories, and public health laboratories) to securely share laboratory results instantly.

The benefits of OLIS membership to patients include:

  • More timely and complete laboratory information
  • Decreased duplication of laboratory testing
  • Fewer gaps in patient care during transitions (i.e. hospital to family physician, hospital to long-term care, etc.)

SHH is very serious about ensuring the privacy and security of your personal health information. If you wish to restrict access to your information on OLIS, please contact Service Ontario at 1-800-291-1405.
