HIMSS16 Speaker Series: Integrating Mental Health Best Practices at Ontario Shores


Fresh off making IT history as the first Canadian recipient of the HIMSS Nicholas E. Davies Enterprise Award of Excellence, MEDITECH customer Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences is slated to present on March 2nd during HIMSS16.

Sanaz Riahi, RN, MSN, and Philip Klassen, MD, will explain how Ontario Shores has leveraged its EHR to integrate mental health best practices at the point of care. With core principles of recovery and psychiatric clinical practice guidelines built into their system, the organization is able to work more efficiently, while supporting stringent quality standards.

“Implementing MEDITECH was really the catalyst for us to review and revise our workflows throughout our entire organization,” notes Riahi. “Our EHR is making it easy for clinicians to align with evidence-based practices for safer, higher quality patient care.”
