KINGSTON, ON – Novari Health is pleased to announce it has completed another successful implementation of its surgical wait list management and eBooking technology.
The Novari ATC™ software is being provided as software as a service (SaaS) to Humber River Hospital and all surgical offices. The system provides surgeons and their office staff access to a standardised electronic wait list management system and the ability to electronically coordinate the scheduling of surgeries and procedures with the hospital. The technology enhances the ability for collaboration and management of all patients waiting for surgery as well as supporting a regional view of the demand for surgical services.
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 state-of-the-art wait list management system complements these efforts for all patients.
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 & addictions, diabetes, cardiac, medical imaging, etc.
“The department of surgery at Humber River Hospital looks forward to partnering with Novari ATC to provide our patients with up-to-date wait time information to help inform their selection for surgical services; our surgical offices with the tools to organise and prioritise their patients; and the hospital facility to plan, organise and operationalise the delivery of care in a safe and efficient manner. We look forward to future collaborations as we further integrate these software solutions across all platforms for a seamless surgical patient journey from initial clinical encounter to final healthy, restorative visit.” – Dr. Stephen Halman, BASc MD MSc FRCSC, Chief, Department of Surgery | Humber River Hospital, Clinical Associate Professor | Queen’s University, Adjunct Associate Professor | University of Toronto
“Humber River Hospital’s launch of Novari through the central wait list management funding supports our philosophy of digitising the patient journey for improving access to care, while establishing efficiencies for the care team to create a seamless patient record and now better management of our procedural services wait lists. We are grateful for the support provided to us by Ontario Health and Novari in launching this solution.” – Jhanvi Solanki, Vice President, Clinical Programs | Humber River Hospital
“Humber River Hospital is recognised as a digital health leader. This surgical wait list management system builds on the hospital’s use of Novari’s medical imaging wait list and requisition management technology already in use at HRH.” – John Sinclair, CPHIMS-CA, President, Novari Health
