Perth & Smiths Falls adopts Novari solution
June 15, 2022
SMITHS FALLS, Ont. – Novari Health is pleased to announce it has completed another successful implementation of its surgical wait list management and eBooking technology. The Novari ATC software has gone live at Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital (PSFDH). The technology is being provided as software as a service (SaaS) to the hospital and all surgical 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 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 services.
“The Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital is eager to have the ability to use digital wait list technology to support the flow of surgical booking and have better access to surgical wait-time information to support our patients,” said Michael Cohen (pictured), president & CEO, Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital.
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, medical imaging and other procedures.
“The pandemic has demonstrated the imperative for hospitals to have a modern surgical wait list management system. With significant financial support from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Ontario Health, PSFDH and other hospitals are enhancing their ability to improve access to care for their patients,” said John Sinclair, CPHIMS-CA, president, Novari Health,
