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 setting.

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.
