What if there is a difference between the Home Clinic identified in the Home Clinic Client Summary and the Enrolment Status?

It is possible that a patient’s Home Clinic is different in their enrolment status report than in their Home Clinic Client Summary.  This will occur when a patient has moved from one Home Clinic, which has posted the summary, to another Home Clinic. The Home Clinic Client Summary will remain until the new Home Clinic participates in the Home Clinic Client Summary service and makes entries in their EMR that trigger a new summary to be posted. Please see the example below where the client is presently enrolled to Northwest Clinic and has a summary posted from Southeast Clinic.  

What can I expect to find in Clinical Documents?

The Clinical Documents view in eChart contains reports only. Currently the following report types are visible under the Clinical Documents tab:

  • Microbiology reports from Diagnostic Services, Shared Health Winnipeg and Diagnostic Services, Shared Health Brandon (also referenced in the Laboratory tab)
  • Imaging reports from Manitoba’s Radiology Information System (RIS) and the Prairie Mountain Health Digital Imaging reports (these are also referenced under the Imaging view)
  • Enrolment status
  • Home Care Summary
  • EDIS Emergency Discharge Summaries

Are discharge reports from hospitals or doctor’s offices in eChart?

Emergency Department Discharge summaries have been added to eChart since April, 2021. Historical discharge summaries will not appear in eChart. eChart will display a document icon on the Encounters tab and in the Clinical Documents tab under Discharge Summaries. When selected, it will provide a PDF accessible to authorized health-care providers across the province. 

Why do I see lab results in Clinical Documents?

Microbiology lab results contain both text and numerical data and therefore display in a report format so they must be displayed in the Clinical Documents view.

How do I access Microbiology Results?

Although the microbiology test is referenced on the Laboratory and Test History tabs, the result itself is found under the Clinical Documents tab. If you select the test under Labs, you will see the message “see Clinical Document for result details”. This means that you will need to click on the Clinical Documents tab in eChart in order to see the microbiology results.
