Change Identity/Account Provider
Historically Hamilton Health Sciences has provided, via Participant Organizations' Local Registration Authority, credentials to log into ClinicalConnect. In support of Ontario Health - Digital Services' (OHDS) Single Sign-On standard, Participant Organizations, including Sole Practitioners, can transition their existing ClinicalConnect account credentials to be able to log into the portal with ONE ID credentials provided to them by OHDS, so ONE ID becomes their Identity Provider.
For existing approved ClinicalConnect Participants, including Sole Practitioner Participants, this represents a change to the information completed in Part 5: Identity Provider (iDP), in your ClinicalConnect Participation Agreement. As such, a formal request to change Identity Providers must be received by the ClinicalConnect Program Office.
The benefit of transitioning to ONE ID is that with requisite agreements between your organization and OHDS in place, your ClinicalConnect users can be enabled to view data from provincial repositories that are integrated with ClinicalConnect, and they'd be accessing the portal with a username/password they use for other health information systems (Single Sign-On). For most Participant Organizations, completing the Request to Change Identity Provider form is the first step to being enabled with access to various repositories, and from there you will be contacted by Ontario Health (Digital Services) regarding any outstanding requirements to fully complete the Identity Provider transition process, and/or the ClinicalConnect Program Office as described below.
If you wish to change your Identity Provider to ONE ID, please complete the appropriate form below for Sole Practitioners or Participant Organizations. As a reminder, ONE ID credentials should already be provisioned for staff in your organization who have access to ClinicalConnect prior to submitting the Request to Change Identity Provider Form. If this is not complete, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
