Calgary selects Logibec solution for patient scheduling

Logibec Groupe Informatique Ltd. announced that the Calgary Health Region will extend its use of Clinibase patient administration software to the region's major acute-care and urgent-care facilities.

According to this seven-year agreement valued at $4 million, Calgary Health Region intends to implement Clinibase in all existing and additional facilities they manage.

"The Clinibase software, once implemented, will be a core component of the Region's electronic health record strategy by sustaining common processes and data management practices. As such, the software will be required to seamlessly integrate with Calgary Health Region's patient care system and other departmental systems," said Chris Eagle, MD, vice president and chief information officer for Calgary Health Region.

The agreement builds on a strong relationship between the Calgary Health Region and Logibec. Clinibase has been installed in one of the region facilities for many years and has a proven track record in performance and functionality for patient registration and scheduling.

"We look forward to building on our longstanding relationship with Calgary Health Region to help them achieve their important objectives," said Claude Roy, Logibec president and CEO.

The Calgary Health Region is an integrated, publicly funded healthcare system serving a population of one million people in Calgary and the surrounding communities in the province of Alberta, Canada. The Region operates three urban adult hospitals and one pediatric hospital in Calgary as well as several community hospitals in satellite communities around the city, comprising more than 1,800 acute care beds.

The Region provides a full range of acute care services as well as mental health, public health and long term care health services. For more information, visit
