Manitoba to deploy Novari Access to Care Platform
October 12, 2022
WINNIPEG – Manitoba’s Shared Health has reached an agreement with Novari Health, of Kingston, Ont., for the implementation of the Novari Access to Care Software Platform (ATC) at healthcare facilities located across the prairie province. Under the terms of the agreement, the Novari ATC software module will be implemented at facilities throughout Manitoba where surgery and endoscopy are performed.
The Novari Access to Care Software Platform consists of a series of integrated modules that improve patient access to care and efficiency. The Novari ATC module includes surgical wait list management, eBooking, operating room efficiency, analytics, and pre-operative functionality. The system is widely deployed at hospitals and health regions in Ontario and Nova Scotia.
Across the country and around the world, healthcare systems have been working to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on patients. The pandemic has highlighted and accelerated the need for new models of care and new technologies like Novari, that improve access to care.
“Manitoba is prioritizing efforts to address the surgical and diagnostic backlog affecting patients within our province. We look forward to working with Novari to implement technologies that will help us streamline the surgical booking process and better manage our surgical wait lists and improve access to care for Manitobans in need of surgical and endoscopy services,” said Dr. Ed Buchel (pictured), provincial specialty lead, surgery, Shared Health.
“With the challenges facing every healthcare system in the country, the Novari team will work expeditiously and closely with provincial, hospital and clinical leadership across Manitoba to implement our proven technologies,” commented John Sinclair, CPHIMS-CA, president, Novari Health.
