St. Thomas hospital implements Novari MIRM software
November 17, 2021
KINGSTON, Ont. – Novari Health has announced that it has completed another successful implementation of it’s medical imaging referral management technology. St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital (STEGH) is the latest Canadian hospital to implement Novari’s one-of-a-kind cloud-based technology.
The Novari Medical Imaging Requisition Management (MIRM) software has gone live at St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital. The software as a service (SaaS) technology is being provided as an electronic means to manage the processing and workflows associated with inbound referrals for medical imaging. Individual workflows for MRI, CT, mammography, nuclear, and other imaging modalities are complex and still paper-based at most Canadian hospitals. The Novari MIRM system’s workflow capabilities can be configured by hospitals to accommodate unique workflows for each modality and eliminate risks inherent in paper-based processes. The Novari technology provides front line staff and management with accurate and real-time data on the volume of requisitions, the status of every patient’s referral and bottlenecks in the system.
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. Having a modern medical imaging wait-list management and electronic workflow system complements these efforts for all patients including those waiting for surgical consults, surgery, and other procedures.
Novari Health’s innovative and unique access to care technologies are live and being implemented at dozens of hospitals and regional health authorities across Canada.
“The new digital software will allow us to streamline our processes and will reduce wait times for patients. At STEGH, we are always looking for innovative ways to increase efficiency and improve the patient experience. We are pleased to partner with Novari in the launch of this new medical imaging software,” said Yolanda Mundt (pictured), manager, Diagnostic Imaging at STEGH.
“Medical imaging workflows are complex. The team at STEGH understands these complexities, the benefits of a digital tool and, as demonstrated by this successful go live, how to successfully implement innovative enterprise solutions,” said John Sinclair, president, Novari Health.
