Electronic Communication Pilot Projects

The physicians at Medical Associates of Port Perry are excited to be participating in two new electronic communications software evaluations.  These pilot projects will be happening over the next few months with the goal of evaluating and assessing the sustainability of these processes.


Select physicians at Medical Associates of Port Perry are participating in a very exciting pilot project in partnership with the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) and their Local Health Integration Network, with funding from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

The pilot project is called eVisit Primary Care. The pilot has been extended to mid 2019, when it will be evaluated for continued viability.

The project’s web-based platform extends options for patient to access health care. There is no cost to participate and all visit details will be included in the doctor’s medical record.

Should you receive an invitation from your physician and you wish to participate, please complete the attached consent form via the secure email portal (cognisantMD) link.

The following physicians are participating at this time:
Dr. A. Armstrong, Dr. S. Shepherd, Dr. C. Westbrook, Dr. K. Best, Dr. M. Brown, Dr. N. Kazarian, Dr. A. Pawley.

Secure Messaging

In conjuction with our software partner, CognisantMD, a select group of physicians will be using a secure email portal to send information to their patients.  Patient’s who have previously consented to email communication may receive a notification in their email inbox that there is a message available from their physician.
