What is Accession?
Accession is an Internet-based portal through which patients can become more active participants in their health care.
Accession allows patients to make appointments online and to access information contained in their clinic records.
Medical Arts Centre is in the process of starting to test and implement this system and there may be errors or times when the website below is down. These outages are outside of the control of the Medical Arts Centre as this service is controlled by our medical record provider.

What can I do with Accession?
At the present time, only telephone appointments with your usual family physician can be booked online. If you want to schedule another type of appointment, or if you wish to see or speak to someone other than your own family doctor, you must phone the clinic. In addition, if you have any forms that need completion, please call the clinic to ensure you are notified of any potential fees that may be associated with the forms. The phone call will also allow our staff to book an appointment of appropriate duration for the complexity of the form.
You will be limited to scheduling a maximum of three future appointments. You are asked to book only one appointment on a given day.
Change your demographic information
If you move or change your phone number, you can now directly update these changes in your clinic record through Accession. This will help ensure our office can contact you in a timely fashion.
Enter medical information into your chart

Please be aware that your doctor will not automatically review this information on a regular basis. Therefore, if you have any urgent concerns, please make an appointment to review things with your doctor.
