Hôpital Montfort implements Novari solution
May 4, 2022
KINGSTON, Ont. – Novari Health is pleased to announce it has completed another successful implementation of its surgical wait list management and eBooking technology. Hôpital Montfort of Ottawa is the latest Canadian hospital to implement Novari’s surgical and endoscopy access to care technology.
The Novari ATC software has gone live at Hôpital Montfort. The technology is being provided as software as a service (SaaS) to the hospital and all surgical and endoscopy offices. The system provides 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 endoscopy 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 and endoscopy services.
“As post COVID-19 recovery efforts move forward, surgical and endoscopy services at Hôpital Montfort have an integrated solution that facilitates patient referrals, booking and wait time coordination with existing regional and provincial resources, including the Province’s Wait Time Information System,” said Philippe Marleau (pictured), vice-president, quality and patient support services and chief information officer, 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 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 and being implemented at dozens of hospitals and regional health authorities across Canada.
“Our technology is now supporting Hôpital Montfort as they, like hospitals across the country, work to improve access to care for patients waiting for scheduled surgeries. The Montfort clinical, project management, IT and administrative teams worked alongside their Novari colleagues to see this important project through to a successful conclusion,” said John Sinclair, president, Novari Health
