Streamline and Emergis integrate document management solutions at eight Canadian hospitals

Streamline Health Solutions : 29 May, 2008  (Application Story)
Streamline Health Solutions and Emergis, a TELUS company, are deploying an integrated document management and workflow solution at the eight hospitals representing the Centre hospitalier de l'Universite de Montreal (CHUM) and the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC).
The module is integrated into the company's electronic Medical record solution, Oacis, which was rolled out in a prior phase across the various sites.

'Building on our shared vision with CHUM and MUHC to meet the evolving needs of the clinicians, we are taking our electronic health record offering one step further allowing health care providers to have immediate access to patients' clinical data, be it scanned or electronic, anytime, anywhere and through one single application,' said Mark Groper, executive vice-president at Emergis.

The integrated solution provides a consolidated view into a patient's complete history of care and allows physicians to electronically review and sign document-based clinical records within Oacis.

'We are thrilled about our extended partnership with Emergis,' said Jean Huot, chief information officer of the CHUM and the MUHC. 'This integrated document scanning and management solution will result in significant time saving for our clinicians and allow our hospitals to achieve enhanced efficiencies. The valuable time saved in accessing and managing archived documentation can be reinvested with the patient.'

The application utilises Emergis' recently announced partnership with Streamline Health Solutions, Emergis integrated Streamline Health's accessANYware document management and chart completion workflow solution into its Oacis electronic Medical record solution. The integrated solution addresses clinicians' need for immediate access to patient records in hybrid environments, where electronic health records still coexist with paper. CHUM and MUHC will be the first sites in Canada to deploy the integrated solution.

TELUS is working to become a leader in healthcare transformation in Canada. In January 2008, TELUS acquired Emergis, further investing in its healthcare and financial services capabilities, building deep healthcare industry expertise and delivering innovative solutions.

Emergis has a strong presence in both healthcare claims processing and pharmacy management systems in Canada, with industry leading applications and services. It is a leader in electronic health record solutions for the exchange, integration, sharing and retrieval of electronic health information. Emergis' electronic health records and information systems, combined with TELUS' national network and hosting capabilities, provide a platform for healthcare transformation in Canada.
