VITALHUB ANNOUNCES SALE TO LARGE MANITOBA MENTAL HEALTH ORGANIZATION
Vitalhub Corp. has licensed its B Care Electronic Health Record software (EHR) to Manitoba's Northern Regional Health Authority (NRHA), to support NRHA's child and adult inpatient and community mental health programs.
In 2013, Vitalhub's B Care EHR platform was sold and implemented into a major Manitoba inpatient mental health facility that provides services to residents of Manitoba and Nunavut, whose challenging needs cannot be met elsewhere in the provincial health care system.
Building on the success of Vitalhub's implementation, the NRHA has licensed the use of Vitalhub's B Care EHR. This sale marks a significant event for Vitalhub, supporting the first implementation of an EHR, and the interRAI child and youth mental health (ChYMH) and adolescent supplement to support the provinces Healthy Child Manitoba program. This implementation will serve as a demonstration site that will be evaluated to application across the rest of the province.
The Healthy Child Manitoba initiative will be supported by the implementation of the Vitalhub EHR and interRAI ChYMH instrument. A key component of the initiative is the protocol for the assessment and discharge of suicidal youth which will be piloted in Thompson, Man., and the surrounding area. This program will be assessed and evaluated to inform potential changes to the protocol and expansion across Manitoba.
NRHA's implementation of the protocol will serve to validate the effectiveness of EHR systems to support service provisioning for children's and community mental health services in the Thompson region of Manitoba. This pilot represents an opportunity to evaluate and assess the outcomes related to the deployment of an EHR to support improvements in the quality of mental health care and support for those in need.
"We are looking forward to working with the NRHA to support their deployment of the B Care EHR," said Dan Matlow, chief executive officer of Vitalhub. "Over the past 10 years we have developed a deep working knowledge and proficiency in supporting our clients use of interRAI assessments nationally. We look forward to leveraging this experience to support opportunities for expanding our deployment of B Care across the mental health and community health sector throughout Manitoba."
