Enabling technologies help improve workflow and enhance care coordination

TORONTO, ON – June 1, 2015 – Orion Health will demonstrate its continued success in working with Canadian healthcare organizations to help improve care coordination at this year’s e-Health Conference in Toronto, May 31 to June 3. As a gold sponsor of the conference, Orion Health will profile its achievements with the Alberta eReferral launch, the success realized powering Brockville General Hospital’s EMR system with Rhapsody Integration Engine, and the successful pilot implementation of OntarioMD’s Hospital Report Manager (HRM).

“Our clients always present us with exciting opportunities and unique challenges to overcome,” explained Gary Folker, Senior Vice President, Orion Health, “and it’s important to have a platform such as this e-Health conference where we can share our insights from projects in order to facilitate progress within our healthcare system. These sessions are intended to encourage conversations and incite healthy debates as we focus on the ultimate goal of improving continuity of care for patients.”

During the conference, Orion Health will be engaged in the following activities:

  • To improve the coordination of care, on Monday, June 1st and on Tuesday, June 2nd Orion Health will participate in the e-Health Success Story Showcase with OntarioMD in a session entitled ‘Hospital Report Manager – Bridging the communication gap between Ontario hospitals and primary care providers’. The presentation will demonstrate how Rhapsody delivered via OntarioMD’s HRM system have been able to streamline workflow and further improve communications between the hospital and primary care physician during a patient’s care journey.
  • Also on Tuesday, June 2 at 9:40 am at Station 4, Roland D. Taylor, Project Manager & Systems Analyst for Brockville General Hospital (BGH) will lead a poster presentation, exploring how Rhapsody’s robust integration engine delivered healthcare providers seamless, flexible access to patient reports in ‘How the Eastern Ontario CDR and OntarioMD HRM Help Provide Timely Community Care’.
  • On Wednesday, June 3 in Meeting Room 202, Dr. Allen Ausford will highlight how an eReferral solution can lead to better informed decisions and more effective care in the concurrent session, ‘Transforming Alberta’s Referral Experience: Connecting Patients and Healthcare Professionals Through eReferral’.

OntarioMD, along with Orion Health, have been named a finalist for a 2015 Canadian Health Informatics Award (CHIA), highlighting its work connecting hospitals and physicians in Ontario. This solution has empowered doctors with real-time patient information and has expedited post-discharge follow-up practices with patients thanks to eNotifications.
