Ontario hospitals sign on for Medworxx applications

TORONTO -- Medworxx, a leading provider of comprehensive knowledge management and knowledge sharing solutions for the healthcare market, announced that Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences/St. Joseph’s Care Group, Kingston General Hospital, and Halton Healthcare Services have joined the Medworxx customer list.

Medworxx customers are using the MEDcms content management to manage their intranet and internet websites; the MEDpolicy application to manage policies and procedures; and MEDlearn to support the requirement for hospital-wide e-learning and to ensure compliance with legislated requirements

“We are very pleased to make this announcement as it validates the Medworxx value proposition that hospitals need an integrated knowledge management solution that enables them to simplify the management and distribution of content, policies and educational material, and at the same time manage compliance,” said Niels Tofting, vice president, sales, Medworxx.

“The Medworxx solution will give us the ability to ensure that our corporate intranet maintains accurate and current content. It is essential that our employees identify the intranet as the location of the most up-to-date and latest information about our hospital,” said Paul McAuley, director, information management, Kingston General Hospital.

“Having the ability to easily post content and provide e-learning between TBRHSC and the St. Joseph’s Care Group was very important to us. The Medworxx knowledge management solution will give us the ability to do just that. For us the decision to partner with Medworxx was easy because we knew that we needed both a content management and an e-learning system, and we wanted both from the same vendor,” said Bruce Sutton, chief information officer at TBRHSC and St. Joseph’s Care Group.

“We found MEDlearn to be a fully functional and reasonably priced learning management system. Our training needs are constantly increasing, and after conducting a proof of concept, there was organization-wide interest in using MEDlearn to reduce the administrative overhead of delivering and tracking the training that our workforce requires. Our staff also finds the flexibility of internet-based training a big advantage,” said Vert Rayner, director, information systems, Halton Healthcare Services.
