Novari announces software to ease surgical backlogs
January 5, 2022
KINGSTON, Ont. – Novari Health has launched new technology to help manage COVID-19 surgical backlogs in Ontario, across Canada, and around the world. For the first time ever, the company says, healthcare systems now have access to an innovative tool to help manage surgical backlogs with Novari’s newest software solution.
In response to the elective surgical backlog crisis, Novari Health has launched the Novari Centralized Regional Surgical Wait List Management HUB (“The HUB”), consolidating real-time surgical wait list case information from hospitals across a region or province enabling coordination for the management of elective surgical services.
The HUB allows healthcare systems to understand, in real-time, where patients are waiting for surgery and identify bottlenecks at various stages of the surgical process within a healthcare system.
“Managing surgical backlogs worsened by the necessary cancellation of elective surgeries will require healthcare leaders to have accurate real-time information coupled with wait list management capabilities. The HUB aligns with and supports the efforts underway by provincial governments, regional health authorities and hospitals in improving access to care for Canadians,” said John Sinclair, president of Novari Health.
Using wait list management, analytics, and interactive mapping, this innovative software supports ministries of health, regional health executives, hospital leadership, surgical service managers, chiefs of surgery, and individual surgeons to manage and coordinate surgical services. Up until now, healthcare systems have not had a tool to provide this level of real-time information combined with surgical wait list management capabilities.
Ministries of Health, health regions, and hospitals across Canada have been working to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on patients. Having a state-of-the-art, centralized regional surgical wait list management system, not only greatly elevates their capabilities to manage surgical backlogs but will have a dramatic impact on patients waiting for surgery.
