About E2P

Digitally enabled and connected healthcare

Evidence2Practice Ontario (E2P) is working with hospital and primary care partners to improve clinician experience and enhance patient care.

Together, we are designing easy-to-use digital tools and implementation supports that seamlessly integrate the most up-to-date and relevant evidence and quality standards into front-line clinical systems across Ontario.

Simplifying access to the right evidence at the right time means clinicians can focus on caring for their patients.
