HEALTHe NL, the provincial electronic health record (EHR), is a secure and private record of an individual's health care information available electronically to authorized health care professionals. HEALTHe NL provides accurate and reliable data to support improved health care delivery, decision-making and policy resulting in safer patient care. It also supports improved accountability, stability and efficiency in our provincial health care system.

Access to more comprehensive patient information in one place offers significant benefits for patients, health care professionals, and the whole health care system, including:
Only authorized health care professionals as identified by the Personal Health Information Act (PHIA) have access to HEALTHe NL and the information it contains. Access will be available in a variety of health care settings, including Regional Health Authority (RHA) hospitals, community health and long-term care facilities, as well as within community clinics.
Only health care professionals within a patient's circle of care are allowed to view a patient's profile. All access to HEALTHe NL is subject to audit. The system also keeps a record of each time a profile is accessed, including by whom and when.
The HEALTHe NL Clinical Portal is a web-based application that provides a single point of access to important health information. Every user will have their own username and password and the information is shared over a secure network built with multiple industry safeguards.
You can access HEALTHe NL from the Central Health intranet page or follow the link https://healthenl.ca/.
Access within the Central Regional Health Authority is managed by the Central Health Change Manager in collaboration with the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information. If you require access to HEALTHe NL please contact the Central Health Change Manager or call (709) 256-6274.
