Chyma provides on-call scheduling for Canada's largest urban community hospital

IsaiX Technologies : 03 June, 2008  (Application Story)
Canada's largest urban community hospital, the Scarborough Hospital (TSH), has selected Chyma to help improve on-call scheduling and communications between physicians.
The implementation of Chyma for their team of more than 700 physicians has begun with the busy ER departments at the two hospital campuses and will soon be expanding to the department of general medicine.

'Chyma reflects the commitment of the Scarborough Hospital (TSH) to excellent patient care, and leadership among Canadian hospitals through the adoption of innovative healthcare information technology,' said Jeanie Joaquin, vice president of patient services at the TSH. 'Equally important, Chyma supports our medical team in a meaningful way by giving them a tool to save valuable time in the on-call scheduling process. As an added benefit, we believe that Chyma better positions TSH to attract doctors and locums in our community while enabling our physicians to better manage their schedules and balance their lives.'

'Now with a few mouse clicks, doctors and administrators using Chyma at the TSH will know in 'real time' which physician is on where and when,' said Mark Gregory, vice president of marketing and communications for Chyma. 'The technology is a visionary tool for planning for healthcare emergencies, healthcare resource allocation, and informatics.'

Chyma is a web-based tool that enables physicians and healthcare administrators to manage on-call schedules. Designed by a doctor, Chyma has the features and functionality healthcare professionals want including:

- Rapid generation of schedules
