Novari wins surgical waitlist, booking
KINGSTON, Ont. – Novari Health and
St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton announced that the web-based Novari
Surgical Access with Smart Wait software system has been selected by St.
Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, a Southern Ontario hospital with 650 beds.
The system will manage and report wait times and electronically transmit
booking requests to the operating room.
As part of the contract, Novari Health will develop interfaces with the
hospital’s scheduling and OR information systems.
Originally developed inside of Kingston General Hospital, Novari
Surgical Access with Smart Wait is said to be the only comprehensive
web-based software solution combining list management in the surgeons’
offices with automatic provincial wait times reporting. Novari SA
integrates surgical offices into the hospital systems, improving the
selection, preparation and booking of patients.
The integration of this new software tool will support St. Joseph’s
Healthcare’s on-going adoption of innovative e-health strategies.
Specifically, it will allow enhanced integration between physicians’
offices and the hospital’s surgical booking system.
“This innovative solution will create a streamlined booking process and
increase integration between our hospital and physician offices,” said
Gerardo Castaneda, CIO St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton.
John Sinclair, Novari Health’s Vice President of Business Development
said, “The detailed evaluation process SJHH followed and our ultimate
success continues to validate that Novari Surgical Access with Smart
Wait stands alone in the area of managing and reporting wait times and
electronically connecting the surgical offices to the OR and
“It’s one thing to believe in your own innovative product’s benefits but
it’s all together another when your solution is selected as the best
overall fit by so many expert stakeholders. Our Surgical Access system
is designed to help flatten and reduce surgical wait times while
assisting in the allocation of scarce OR resources. Designed to be
scalable, a single installation can be cost effectively leveraged as the
surgical wait list, booking and provincial reporting tool for a single
hospital or an entire health region.”
