Medworxx to acquire Continuum solutions

TORONTO – Medworxx, a leading provider of comprehensive knowledge management and communication solutions for the healthcare market, has announced an agreement to acquire all of the assets of Continuum solutions from the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital.

Under the terms of the agreement, St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital will continue their involvement as a strategic partner for the ongoing development of the Continuum solutions application.

Continuum solutions provides Clinical Utilization Management software and systems.

Promoting quality care and improved resource management, the Continuum solutions’ daily reports show patient-care status, care delays and readiness for discharge. Strategical graphs identify trends and issues, whether physician, hospital or community. The software connects to existing hospital systems, provides quick data entry and presents information in simple to understand formats.

“We welcome the Continuum solutions staff and clients to the Medworxx family,” said Dan Matlow, President and CEO of Medworxx. “This acquisition is extremely synergistic to our overall strategy. We now have a clinical decision support solution that complements our other offerings.”

Medworxx is now implemented in 65 healthcare organizations encompassing over 100 hospital with a large presence in Ontario, the United States, and the rest of Canada.

The President of St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital, Paul Collins, is proud at what has been achieved by their community hospital with Continuum solutions and elated to see the enterprise moving into a synergistic company that will enable even greater accomplishments.

According to Collins, an important aspect of the transition is the Hospital’s continued role as an alpha site for constantly improving the utilization management tool.

Larry Vanier, previously a Principal with Continuum solutions and past Director of IT at St. Thomas-Elgin, has accepted the position of Vice-President Decision Support & Health Care Processes with Medworxx. He sees the complementary technology and new business relationship resulting in new solutions for customers.
