Quinte adopts AnyWare’s ROAM for
BELLEVILLE, Ont. – AnyWare Group Inc. announced that Quinte Health Care has implemented its
ROAM portal platform to more efficiently access a wide variety of
applications and resources from multiple facilities spread over three
diverse counties in Southeastern Ontario.
The ROAM initiative supports Quinte’s strategic priorities, including
the identification, integration and rationalization of services between
sites and the improvement of communications across the region.
“Radiologists, physicians and managers can work from anywhere,” said
Russell Dick (pictured), IT Director at Quinte Health Care. “When the
weather is questionable, telecommuting helps get the job done without
risking bad roads or wasting valuable patient care-time traveling. ROAM
is enabling physicians to have access to as much information as
possible, which obviously improves the quality of care.”
The ROAM Platform’s VPN provides QHC with a thin client solution that
allows authorized doctors and staff to access:
• new and legacy Meditech systems housed at different locations
• 2 PACS radiology systems
• the corporate Intranet
• Citrix published applications
• Terminal Services applications
• custom Web applications
• the client care information system (WinCis)
• financial system information
• Outlook Web Access.
All applications are presented through a personalized ROAM portal: a
single point of role-based access from any PC or Mac computer.
The rural multi-site hospital has implemented ROAM to improve
collaboration and quality of work life for authorized users – all of
whom have been tasked to provide services to QHC as a whole, as well as
to each other.
ROAM helps fulfill QHC’s e-health strategy, facilitating the creation of
a readily accessible IT system. Through ROAM Reports, IT administration
can measure the use and effectiveness of IT resources accessed through
ROAM. ROAM also supports QHC’s integrated communications strategy by
providing a “news channel” through which management can keep users
informed of important QHC and regional communiques.
“We at AnyWare Group are very excited to be working with Quinte Health
Care on this important initiative that truly highlights the unique
capabilities of the ROAM Platform,” said Robert Lalonde, CEO of AnyWare
Group Inc. “By providing authorized physicians, clinicians and managers
with a single point of access to hospital systems and applications, ROAM
is helping QHC deliver equitable, flexible healthcare across QHC’s
diverse communities while improving the work life and efficiency of QHC
