KINGSTON, ON – December 6, 2023 – Novari Health is pleased to announce it has completed another successful implementation of its surgical wait list management and eBooking technology.
With support from the government of Ontario, the Novari ATC™ software has been provided as software as a service to North York General Hospital (NYGH) and all surgical offices. With bi-directional integration to the Oracle Cerner HIS system, the Novari software provides surgeons and their office staff access to a standardized electronic wait list management system and the ability to electronically coordinate the scheduling of surgeries and procedures with the hospital.
The government of Ontario and hospitals across the province have been working to mitigate the lasting effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on patients waiting for many healthcare services. Having a state-of-the-art wait list and backlog management system complements these efforts for all patients including those waiting for surgery, medical imaging, mental health and addictions, diabetes, and other healthcare services.
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.

By providing real-time data, this system will enable us to continuously evaluate and improve our wait time performance.” – Dr. Peter Stotland, Interim Chief of Surgery at North York General Hospital
