When Susan Barnard had a colonoscopy and was told a couple biopsies were being sent for testing, the worrying began.
Thankfully relief came just two days later when her family doctor called to tell her the results all came back clear.
“It certainly made my life a lot easier,” said the Hamilton woman.
Her friend who had the colon cancer screening test around the same time waited six weeks before hearing from the specialist about the results.
Barnard found out quickly thanks to ClinicalConnect, a secure online portal for health care providers to access a patient’s electronic health record.
