Osler Health to use Medworxx for training, education

TORONTO – Medworxx, the makers of a strategic software platform that hospitals use to communicate, aggregate, and analyze knowledge, is pleased to announce that William Osler Health Centre (WOHC) has joined the growing list of Medworxx customers. William Osler Health Centre will implement the Medworxx Learning Management System (LMS) in the Etobicoke and Brampton, Ont. locations, including the new state-of-the-art Brampton Civic Hospital.

Medworxx’s customers use the Learning Management System to support the ongoing knowledge development of healthcare workers and to access the knowledge they need, when they need it, to continuously improve and provide the highest level of care. It also gives hospitals the ability to demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements in real-time.

“At William Osler, staff education is a high priority,” said Judy Middleton (pictured), CIO, William Osler Health Centre. “We will use the LMS to support our classroom-based and online learning, and we look forward to the extensive reporting capabilities that the Medworxx solution will provide, allowing us to determine skill gaps, and help to ensure individual, group-based, and corporate-wide compliance with regulatory requirements.”

“We are excited to have William Osler join the Medworxx community,” says Susan Gershman, EVP Operations & Marketing, Medworxx. “A growing number of hospitals throughout North America are adopting the Medworxx solution. Their participation in our Product Advisory Groups accelerates our ability to deliver solutions focused on hospital requirements, providing benefit and value in a short time-frame.”

WOHC joins other Ontario hospitals who have recently made the decision to implement the Medworxx solution, or significantly expand their current use of the platform. Those hospitals include Mental Health Centre at Penetanguishene, which is implementing the Medworxx LMS and Content Management System (CMS); and North Bay General Hospital and Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital, which have selected the Medworxx Utilization Management System.
