Mount Sinai addresses backlog using Novari ATC
December 21, 2022
TORONTO – Mount Sinai Hospital, part of Sinai Health, announced that it will implement Novari Health’s surgical wait list management and eBooking technology. The Novari ATC technology will provide surgeons and office staff with access to a wait list management system and the ability to electronically coordinate the scheduling of surgeries and procedures.
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.
“This system will help as we move forward with expanding our surgical services to address surgical backlog, identify prioritized patients, and meet our ultimate goal of ensuring safe and efficient flow through our program,” said Lisa Wayment (pictured), senior clinical program director, surgery and oncology, Mount Sinai Hospital.
“The ability to receive real time data will enable us to assess and evaluate our performance, and guide our decisions so that they are data driven and evidence based.”
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. The implementation of the award winning Novari ATC system includes integration to the hospital’s Oracle Health Cerner Millenium electronic health record (EHR) system, automating the surgical booking process.
Novari Health’s innovative and unique access to care technologies are live and being implemented at hospitals and regional health authorities in Canada and Australia. The Novari access to care platform helps improve access to care, wait times, and drive efficiencies for patients accessing a wide variety of health care services including surgery, mental health & additions, diabetes, cardiac, medical imaging, etc.
“Our system’s ability to provide the leadership at Mount Sinai with accurate and real time information on patients queuing for surgery will greatly assist them in their efforts to provide timely and compassionate access to care,” said John Sinclair, president, Novari Health.
