Integrated Assessment Record

What is the Integrated Assessment Record (IAR)?

The Integrated Assessment Record (IAR) is an electronic tool that allows authorized users to view a client/patient’s previous assessment information and work in collaboration with other care providers to effectively plan and deliver services. Patients across the Erie St. Clair Local Health Integration
Network (ESC LHIN) who are affected by mental health issues now have improved access to care that recognizes their unique needs.
