Nightingale selected by preventative
MARKHAM, Ont. – Nightingale
Informatix Corp., a provider of electronic medical record (EMR) software
with more than 5.3 million patient records under management, announced
that it has been selected to provide hosted EMR services to preventative
care leader, Wellpath Clinic. The EMR will be used across the entire
network of Wellpath Clinic locations supporting the delivery of modern,
personalized and consistent patient care at every visit.
Nightingale On Demand EMR will be deployed as the core system by
Wellpath Clinic as they put together one of North America’s most
advanced models for the delivery of Naturopathic Medicine and
preventative care. The EMR will be used at the point of care by all of
the clinic’s doctors in an effort to enhance care and ensure a
consistent patient experience, a cornerstone of successful preventative
“There is no question that electronic medical records represent a
critical step forward in the delivery of modern healthcare. But not all
EMRs are the same,” said Dr. Kathryn Nobrega-Porter. “Nightingale offers
us a robust system that allows doctors to deliver better, faster and
more complete support and care to patients”.
More attention is being paid to preventative care models as healthcare
costs grow and as patients take greater interest in their own health.
Wellpath Clinic has a unique delivery model that differentiates it from
other naturopathic clinics. It offers a structured approach to care that
begins on first contact with the patient and continues through ongoing
care. They offer a comprehensive set of programs that provide a
framework for diagnosis and patient care plans. Patients will be able to
visit any Wellpath Clinic and experience a seamless continuity in the
delivery of care and support.
“Nightingale is a forward thinking organization that clearly recognizes
that healthcare is all about managing ongoing relationships with
patients,” said Richard Porter, General Manager of Wellpath Clinic. “The
use of technology to hold historic data and to support real-time
decisions has proven critical to the success in so many other industries
and it is time for healthcare to get on board. And web-based access
provides flexibility and efficiencies that makes a clinic much more
Nightingale On Demand will be an integral part of the Wellpath Clinic
framework. It will provide the doctors and staff with tools at the point
of care and it will maintain patient health information aligned with
Wellpath Clinics proprietary programs.
Doctors will have secure access to patient medical records through a
fully web based delivery model. This means that every clinic will have
access to the same set of tools and patient records every time the
patient visits or calls a Wellpath Clinic location. This is important to
ensuring the consistency of experience and care.
“From the moment you walk in the door of a Wellpath Clinic it is clear
that they have a new approach to health and to care,” said Sam Chebib,
President and CEO of Nightingale. “We look forward to working in
partnership with them to develop a new model in the delivery of
Nightingale’s EMR solution, Nightingale On Demand is a full featured EMR
and practice management system that automates clinical activities such
as documenting patient care, prescription writing, lab orders and
results, as well as the scheduling and billing of patient visits.
