iMDsoft chosen by Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Canada
The MetaVision clinical information system will be implemented across the hospital’s critical care environment Needham, MA – July 25th, 2013 – iMDsoft® announced that Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre has chosen MetaVision® as the clinical information system for all of their ICUs. The system will be implemented in adult, neonatal and burn intensive care units, across a total of 130 beds. Sunnybrook Health Sciences in Toronto has 1.2 million patient visits each year, and is the largest single-site hospital in Canada. When evaluating potential systems, the hospital chose MetaVision for its customizability. Unlike many competitive offerings, MetaVision can adapt to the unique workflow of a particular department. Clinicians can tailor the system in accordance with how they work, and easily incorporate new processes at any point. The system’s interoperability was an additional factor in its selection. MetaVision interfaces with all typical hospital systems, such as ADT, Labs, CPOE, billing, scheduling, PACS, and LDAP, while fully complementing a hospital’s overall IT strategy. The MetaVision library of drivers contains over 200 medical devices, and additional drivers are continually being developed to meet customer requirements. MetaVision automatically creates a complete electronic health record, provides workflow coverage across the entire continuum of care, and arms healthcare professionals with timely, accurate, and actionable information. The system is designed to support the unique workflows of complex, data-rich high acuity settings and is built to deliver results in areas of the hospital with the highest cost, morbidity, mortality and revenue. Its dynamic patient-centric information repository and advanced decision support options promote the delivery of best practices, protocols, and regulatory requirements. “We look forward to harnessing the capabilities and flexibility of MetaVision to improve the care we provide our patients,” said Dr Neill Adhikari, intensivist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. “This care will be based on an understanding of patients’ clinical trajectory that will be better informed by the stored and real-time clinical data in this integrated clinical information system. We also anticipate using the rich clinical data to more efficiently identify, implement, and evaluate local quality improvement initiatives, and to more effectively screen patients for opportunities to participate in clinical research studies.” “More and more hospitals in Canada are realizing the value of our feature-rich system, which was designed to answer the complex needs of the intensive care unit,” said David Sides, CEO of iMDsoft. “MetaVision’s flexibility enables hospitals to embed and enforce best practice protocols in their clinical and administrative workflows, and to continuously identify opportunities for improving care quality and efficiency.” About iMDsoft iMDsoft is a leading provider of Clinical Information Systems for critical, perioperative and acute care environments.
