Contract awarded to further digital health in Ontario
November 17, 2021
TORONTO – Think Research Corporation is pleased to announce that it has been awarded an Ontario wide contract through the Better Access Alliance that was led by Orion Health. The total contract value of the agreement is approximately $5.2M for the period ending in 2026, with optional renewals.
The Alliance will help develop Ontario’s new digitally-enabled healthcare navigation tool that will bring Ontarians more modern, accessible, and digitally-enabled healthcare choices. With this tool, Ontarians will have a ‘Digital Front Door’ to Ontario’s healthcare system, offering a place where they can have easier access to health information, advice, initial triage, symptom checking, mental health and addictions supports, home and community care, caregiver supports, information on finding a local doctor or nurse practitioner, and virtual care.
As a part of the Alliance, Think Research will deploy software across the province of Ontario through a SaaS-model connecting patients to health information and to receive guidance throughout their healthcare journey. This deployment builds upon Think’s existing footprint across Ontario as the prime vendor supporting the Province’s eServices/eReferrals products.
In addition to Think Research, the Alliance includes a number of companies with proven records in technology integration, health data, and innovation fields, including SE Health, Bell Canada, and Ada Health. Orion Health was selected as the lead vendor through an innovative public procurement process, guided by patients, families, caregivers, health service providers, and the imagination and capabilities of Ontario’s digital health innovators.
