MEDITECH’s Traverse Exchange Canada connects to Oracle e-Hub and provincial resources

MEDITECH’s Traverse Exchange Canada has experienced rapid growth since its March go-live. MEDITECH recently took another step toward its long-term vision of breaking down interoperability barriers across Canada by connecting its first pilot organization, CHAMP, to Oracle’s e-Hub.

MEDITECH’s Traverse Exchange Canada has experienced rapid growth, now connecting seven healthcare instances across 19 hospitals using MEDITECH Expanse, along with hundreds of long-term care sites operating the PointClickCare EHR. The latest Expanse customers to join the network include CHAMP, Halton Healthcare, CARE4, SHINE, and Humber River Health.

“As an organization, we are committed to advancing interoperability as a means of improving healthcare delivery and outcomes. Traverse Exchange Canada has enabled more Ontario organizations than ever to conveniently exchange key patient health data.”

  • "Even though the content of the Electronic Health Record is sometimes in English – for continuity of care with our community partners – offering our patients a French interface was non-negotiable. By collaborating with MEDITECH, we were able to make this option available."

  • "One way we're leveraging Expanse to assist us in some of our health equity work is that we recently turned on the feature for pronouns. And that means that the individual's pronouns are right there in the health record for the clinician to see and that person doesn't have to explain their gender identity, every time. That's a great example of when you change something in the system it's just changed for life, the patient doesn't have to keep coming back and telling you over and over again."

  • “We just had a patient see a poster about the portal, and download the app while he was in the waiting room. Before leaving his appointment he logged into the portal and discovered that he could access his lab results from his phone. He said this was going to have a significant impact on his ability to manage his own care. These are the types of stories we are hearing every day.”
