MEDITECH Celebrates North America’s First Fully Digital Hospital
During a recent visit, MEDITECH President and CEO Howard Messing presented a congratulatory banner to Humber River Hospital's (Toronto, ON) newly appointed President/CEO Barbara Collins and CIO Peter Bak--honoring their achievement as North America’s first fully digital hospital.
Humber’s innovative technologies--which include self-serve kiosks and robots which mix and administer medications--enable their staff to spend more time focusing on patient care and safety.
“MEDITECH is proud to be a longstanding partner with Humber River Hospital," says Messing. "We share the same goals for improving physician productivity and maximizing efficiencies so providers can focus on safe patient care.”
Collins took the helm from the recently retired Dr. Rueben Devlin, whose leadership brought the vision of a fully digital hospital to fruition. That vision included the deployment of MEDITECH’s 6.x EHR, as well as becoming the first 6.x adopter of MEDITECH’s Oncology Management solution.
“Our efforts to use technology to enrich all aspects of patient care have benefitted greatly from our partnership with MEDITECH,” says Collins.
“Pushing vital information to care teams; enhancing communications with patients and families; improving safety and efficiency--all these and more have been helped by the integration of the MEDITECH platform into our workflows and processes.”
