AccessPt supplies integration solution
AccessPt. Inc., a developer of Internet-based software
applications for the healthcare industry, has announced an agreement to
develop and implement an innovative IT solution for
the Hamilton Health
Sciences Corp., in Hamilton, Ont.
HHSC, made up of five hospitals and a cancer care
centre, will install AccessPt’s enterprise portal solution,
which enables authorized physicians to gain instant access to disparate
patient data spread throughout the delivery organization.
The AccessPt system offers clinicians a single sign-on, as well as a
single patient search utility from any secure computer with Internet
access. Moreover, the AccessPt system visually integrates disparate data
through a common and intuitive human interaction model, thus
transforming fragmented data into integrated and meaningful clinical
AccessPt will also be developing the hospital’s clinical portal, which
will grow to an enterprise portal encompassing other hospitals in their
“A quantum leap! These words describe the level of
change afforded by AccessPt Inc.’s web based enterprise portal
technologies,” said Dale Anderson, IT Manager with Hamilton Health
Sciences. “We are excited to be working with AccessPt in the deployment
of their software. The ability to consolidate multiple information
sources and vendor systems together using intuitive web browser
technology will assist not only Hamilton Health Sciences, but
significantly improve communications with community providers. Our
physicians and ultimately our patients will be better served.”
Currently, most computer data is contained on a variety of platforms and
isolated programs. Tearing down and replacing those systems with a
single-vendor alternative is cost prohibitive and extremely risky.
AccessPt’s business model enables any care delivery organization, small
or large, to rapidly connect underlying systems across all care venues.
“We’re elated to be selected as a partner with Hamilton and count such a
prestigious health system as our first Canadian customer. AccessPt is
tailor made for Canada’s healthcare regionalization initiatives, and
Hamilton is certainly taking a leading role in that effort. We’re glad
to be a part of Hamilton’s commitment to positively impact the delivery
of care in Southern Ontario.,” said Mike Drake, AccessPt’s President and
Hamilton Health Sciences Corp.

provider, not only for the downtown community of Hamilton, but for the
entire South Central Ontario region. With state-of-the-art facilities,
