What Is the North West LHIN eHealth Project Management Office and Change Management?

The North West LHIN eHealth Project Management Office and Change Management (PMO) aids in initiating, managing and tracking eHealth projects across the North West LHIN’s region.

The eHealth PMO is available to health service providers if and when they need it.   It is a resource centre of helpful ideas and advice that’s been set up and developed with the advice and assistance of people who work in the Northwest.
