Ontario centres to implement lab and prescription modules

MARKHAM, Ont. – The Association of Ontario Health Centres (AOHC) and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) have once again elected to team up with York-Med Systems Inc. as the service provider for the Purkinje PM and Purkinje Dossier Version 4.22 Rollout.

York-Med will be updating the Purkinje software currently being used in 60 Community Health Centres across Ontario and providing the necessary training to ease all healthcare workers into the new program changes. This update will equip all of the CHCs with two new time saving components; Electronic Labs and Electronic Prescriber.

The North Hamilton, East End, and Centre Francophone de Toronto Community Health Centres have had the updated 4.22 Version of Purkinje Dossier and Purkinje PM installed over the past couple of weeks and are now undergoing training by York-Med’s trainers. This week the Davenport Perth CHC is receiving the update and full training from York-Med. A full rollout of this upgrade is planned for all CHCs in April of this year.

York-Med will upgrade, install, run conversions, and provide end user training on the new software components. A preliminary workflow analysis will be conducted at each of the centres to assist centres with the transition.

For more information regarding York-Med’s workflow analysis, training programs, or information on their software solutions (Medical Desktop and Purkinje Dossier), contact Linda Mackfall at York-Med.
