Five Ontario hospitals choose PatientKeeper for mobile info access
Canadian Healthcare Technology
Five hospitals in southwestern Ontario which share a common IT infrastructure are acquiring PatientKeeper software to link MDs and their mobile devices to the hospitals' electronic medical records.
"It's taking us to a new level," says Andrew Williams, chief executive officer of the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA), which includes hospitals in Clinton, St. Marys, Seaforth and Stratford, Ontario. (The fifth institution is the Alexandra Marine & General Hospital.)
PatientKeeper is a "physician overlay" that sits on top of (and integrates with) back-end hospital or clinic information systems. At Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance, the back-end system is MEDITECH, but PatientKeeper advertises itself as "back-end agnostic"; it can integrate with whatever system a hospital uses.
