Created by the provincial government in September , eHealth Ontario is a government Agency created to take a lead role in harnessing information technology and innovation to improve patient care, safety and access. SSVM works with the business units to facilitate the identification, negotiation, contracting and post contract implementation of suppliers. The software had to allow multiple users to input, update, track, and create contracts and associated purchases as well as track the status of a contract at any given point in time. The CMA had to allow users to mark contracts as proposed, modified, or accepted, define tasks accept, review, reject, etc. One of the main issues within eHealth is the routing of documents manually which in turn caused delays in the approval processes, resulting in uncertainty of where contract files were and in some cases resulting in missing documents altogether.
