Welcome to Soldiers' / electronic Child Health Network

The electronic Child Health Network is a system of computers that allows member hospitals, home care agencies and paediatricians in Ontario to share your child's health information and better plan your child's care. eCHN ensures that children receive the right care in the right place at the right time.


eCHN is the first comprehensive electronic child health network in North America. OSMH teamed up with IBM and other eCHN members: SickKids (Toronto), St. Joseph's Health Centre (Toronto), St. Elizabeth's Health Care, and the Rouge Valley Health Care Centre - Centenary Site) to offer this innovative service. It has three main components:

  • Your Child's Health, an educational website for children, parents, and anyone wanting health information for mothers, newborns, and children. Visit Your Child's Health on the Internet.
  • PROFOR, a password-protected, online forum for health care professionals affiliated with eCHN and CHN institutions. To learn more about PROFOR and how to register please¬†visit their site.
  • Health Data Network, a secure, confidential connection that enables health information from a child's health record to be shared electronically. The information made available may include laboratory results, x-rays, visit information, address, and contact people.

You will be asked to sign a consent form at OSMH to give eCHN members permission to share health information about your child with each other. If you choose not to sign the consent form, your child will be cared for in the same way. However, your child's health information will not be available electronically to other eCHN members. Your child's health information is confidential and will remain private within eCHN. It is not available through the Internet.
