Novari Health completes deployment at Thunder Bay
May 18, 2022
THUNDER BAY, Ont. – Novari Health has announced that it has completed another successful implementation of its medical imaging referral management technology. Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC) 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 TBRHSC. The software as a service (SaaS) technology is being provided as an electronic means to manage the receipt, 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 and inefficiencies 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 pandemic has galvanized the necessity for medical imaging departments to improve efficiency and access to care by both removing paper from their workflows and leveraging wait list management,” said John Sinclair (pictured), president of Novari. “With this successful implementation, TBRHSC joins a rapidly growing number of Canadian hospitals to deploy Novari medical imaging technology.”
