Hôpital Montfort to implement Novari’s surgical tech
May 19, 2021
KINGSTON, Ont. – Novari Health has announced an agreement with Hôpital Montfort of Ottawa to immediately implement its surgical wait list management and eBooking technology. The Novari ATC technology is being provided as software as a service (SaaS) to the hospital and all surgical offices.
The system will provide these 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 software enhances the ability for collaboration and management of pooled lists of patients waiting for surgery as well as supporting a regional view of the demand for surgical services.
“This software will help us prioritize postponed cases, ensure patient safety, improve patient outcomes, and get back to business in a well-orchestrated way,” said Marcelle Thibeault (pictured), director surgical program and perioperative care, emergency and endoscopy services, Hôpital Montfort.
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. The implementation of the award winning Novari ATC system includes integration to Montfort’s installation of Meditech and will automate the surgical booking process.
Novari Health’s innovative and unique access to care technologies are live or being implemented at dozens of hospitals and regional health authorities across five Canadian provinces.
“COVID-19 has impacted surgical wait times in much of Canada. Having a digital wait list management system was important before the pandemic. Now it’s even more important,” said John Sinclair, president, Novari Health.
