Ontario Shores EHR Beginnings Featured in Health Data Management


When it came to rolling out their first Electronic Health Record, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences went the extra mile and then some. The recent Davies Award winner and MEDITECH customer implemented a comprehensive team approach to ensure a smooth transition to the new paperless system.

“From 2008 to 2010, more than a dozen people on a cross-functional team worked full-time on overhauling processes, rethinking workflows, and getting the technology in place,” reports Health Data Management. “Then, well ahead of the tech rollout, Ontario Shores debuted the new processes.”
