Brockville General implements Novari surgical software
July 20, 2022
BROCKVILLE, Ont. – Novari Health is pleased to announce it has completed another successful implementation of its surgical wait list management and eBooking technology at Brockville General Hospital. The ATC 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.
“Novari ATC provides our surgeons and their offices with a standardized electronic wait list management system. Previously the process at our hospital had been paper-based. Now, with Novari, surgeon offices have a comprehensive patient list visible on a screen in order of priority. The information is readily available, easy to share, and objective. Novari will be helpful for our physicians to manage our wait times effectively and accurately book our cases in the operating room, as well as provide data and insight into our operative practice,” said Dr. Michael Fuoco (pictured), chief of surgery, Brockville General 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.
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 implementation of Novari surgical wait list management technology at BGH is a major step towards completing a region-wide deployment of enhanced wait times capabilities. This work at BGH and other hospitals in the south-east of Ontario is being done in advance and in preparation of the upcoming implementation of the Oracle Cerner HIS system. The Novari – Oracle Cerner integration has proven invaluable in delivering a seamless experience,” said John Sinclair, CPHIMS-CA, president, Novari Health.
