The Repatriation Tool

The Repatriation Tool supports patient flow within the broader hospital system by enabling hospitals to both initiate and receive requests to move patients either from or to their hospital, as appropriate, for the patient’s ongoing care. These requests are initiated electronically within the Repatriation Tool so that information related to the patient’s ongoing care requirements can be communicated and hospitals can signal their ability to accept the patient if possible. The Repatriation Tool enables the collection of related data including timelines, challenges and responsiveness of the hospitals using the system.

How many acute care hospitals use the Repatriation Tool?

Since 2014, the Repatriation Tool has been available to all acute care hospitals in the province of Ontario. There are currently more than 2000 active users.
