Test Harness is down

It seems the test harness has been down since yesterday.

Is this a scheduled outage? When will it be available again?

Specifically interested in hitting the Lite version of PCR and DHDR for now.

SPARK for Innovators

SPARK is a pathway that enables digital health solutions to be delivered to patients – faster and easier.

Innovators would use the SPARK pathway to connect their solution to over five billion pieces of data that currently exist in electronic health records for nearly 14 million people in Ontario. Patients will then use the applications to gain access to their own data to manage their care. SPARK will guide innovators through a series of steps to allow data to flow into the hands of its owner –patients. Today, there are many barriers prohibiting innovators from connecting to Ontario’s electronic health infrastructure, which has stifled innovation. SPARK’s pathway will support the ongoing development and diffusion of digital health solutions in Ontario, liberate access to and exchange of data, and accelerate innovation.

If you are interested in participating in SPARK when it is ready for use, please complete the brief survey found here.
