BGH to utilize Novari surgical wait list technology
October 20, 2021
KINGSTON, Ont. – Novari Health has announced that it has executed an agreement with Brockville General Hospital to implement its surgical wait list management and eBooking technology.
Novari Health’s ATC software will be implemented at Brockville General Hospital.
The 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.
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 or being implemented at dozens of hospitals and regional health authorities across Canada.
“When someone needs surgery, our goal is to get them back to their best life, as soon as possible,” says Nick Vlacholias (pictured), president and CEO at Brockville General Hospital. “Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, sadly, there were more people waiting to receive this life-changing care. By introducing Novari’s Access to Care system, BGH is helping individuals who are waiting by providing a more direct and comprehensive communication tool with surgical offices. This modern technology also opens future opportunities to improves access to care across our health system.”
