KINGSTON, ON – Novari Health is pleased to announce it has completed a successful implementation of its Cardiac Services Referral Management™ solution.
The software as a service (SaaS) technology is being provided to Southlake Regional Health Centre as an electronic means to manage the receipt, processing and workflows associated with inbound referrals for the Cardiac Programs. The Novari Cardiac Services Referral Management software allows hospital based cardiac programs to eliminate paper and improve the program’s referral workflows for clinicians, clerical staff, hospital management, and leadership. The Novari Health technology provides front line staff and management with accurate and real-time data on the volume of referrals, the status of every patient’s referral and bottlenecks in the system.
The Ontario Ministry of Health, Ontario Health, and hospitals across the province have been working to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on patients waiting for surgery. Having a modern wait list management system complements these efforts for all patients including those waiting for surgical and medical consults, surgery, and other procedures.
Novari Health’s innovative and unique access to care technologies are live and being implemented at hospitals and regional health authorities in Canada and Australia. The Novari access to care platform helps improve access to care, wait times, and drive efficiencies for patients accessing a wide variety of health care services including surgery, mental health & additions, diabetes, cardiac, medical imaging, etc.
