After a thorough procurement process and rigorous review that involved investigating more than 2,500 functional requirements, Trillium Health Partners (THP) has selected their new hospital information system.
Epic, the most widely-used and comprehensive health records system worldwide, is used by many top-ranked hospitals and medical schools across the world. The new system will replace a number of systems in place today. Each patient will have one record that is shared among their providers, improving transparency and consistency.
“Implementing Epic will enable our care providers to offer the best possible care to our patients, improve their overall experience and ultimately contribute to better health outcomes for our community,” said Michelle DiEmanuele, THP president and CEO.
The contract agreement kicks off a multi-year project to modernize and advance clinical care through the implementation of a single hospital information system at THP. The system will be designed and set up over the coming 18 months. It’s set to go live in 2020.
All organizations using Epic interoperate, which means they can easily exchange patient data for improved patient care. Providers will have the ability to coordinate care with clinicians outside of THP who serve their patients and their families, closing care gaps and reducing duplication. As the leader in interoperability, Epic will enable providers to easily exchange data for improved continuity of care across Ontario and Canada.
