Decision support software
Continuum solutions gains new hospital users
ST. THOMAS, Ont. – Continuum solutions has announced
that three additional healthcare organizations are now benefiting from
its resource utilization management software. The organizations are:
Pembroke General Hospital (Pembroke, Ont.), Winnipeg Regional Health
Authority and Royal Victoria Hospital (Barrie, Ont.)
Continuum solutions provides healthcare facilities with an effective
approach to improving and maintaining appropriate utilization of
resources, beginning with acute care. The system results in better use
of beds across a care delivery system.
Continuum solutions is a company owned by the St-Thomas Elgin General
Hospital. Its technology was devised through research conducted at the
hospital, which was then developed into a full-fledged software system.
Managed by Larry Vanier (pictured) and Sandi Jenkins, the company now
has hospital users across Canada.
Through its criteria, methods and software, patients are assessed on a
daily basis to determine if they are in the correct level of care. The
system prompts decision-making to ensure that patients’ specific care
needs are addressed in the most appropriate setting, whether it is in
acute care, complex continuing care, rehabilitation or in a community
In October, Continuum solutions held its most highly attended User
Conference to date. Users from across Canada gathered in Toronto to
share ideas, hear about new developments at the company, and to keep in
touch with their peers.
December will see Continuum solutions implement its new Version 3 of the
software into its client sites. This version includes new features such
as multi-criteria sets, expanded reports, enhanced search capabilities
and a security audit log viewer.
