Niagara Health using Novari ATC technology for surgery
July 26, 2023
KINGSTON, Ont. – Novari Health has executed an agreement with Niagara Health to implement its surgical wait list management and eBooking technology. The Novari ATC technology is being provided as software as a service to the hospital and all surgical offices.
The system will provide these surgeons and their office staff access to a state-of-the-art 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.
“Niagara Health is proud to partner with Novari Health on implementing its surgical wait list management technology, as part of the work underway to build our new hospital information system. This solution will reduce surgical wait times and improve patient care for community members in Niagara,” said Sonali Kohli (pictured), executive vice-president, Digital Transformation and chief information officer, Niagara Health.
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 upcoming deployment of the Oracle Health hospital information system (HIS).
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 & addictions, diabetes, cardiac, medical imaging, etc.
“Novari is pleased to be working with Niagara Health and our partner Oracle Health as part of this digital transformational project. Novari’s centralized wait list management expertise and technology will help ensure timely access to care for patients in the Niagara region,” said John Sinclair, CPHIMS-CA, president, Novari Health.
