AccessPt supplies integration solution at Hamilton hospitals

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 information.

AccessPt will also be developing the hospital’s clinical portal, which will grow to an enterprise portal encompassing other hospitals in their system.

“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 CEO.
