TORONTO'S LEAD AGENCY FOR CHILD & YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH ENTERS INTO A 5-YEAR AGREEMENT WITH VITALHUB TO LICENSE TREAT FOR THEIR INTEGRATED CLIENT INFORMATION AND CARE COORDINATION SOLUTION
Vitalhub Corp. has licensed Treat to Strides Toronto for five years. Formed in January, 2020, through the amalgamation of Aisling Discoveries Child and Family Centre and East Metro Youth Services, Strides Toronto provides a range of community, residential and treatment services to improve the mental, social and physical health of infants, children and youth. Collaborating with Toronto's 25 core service providers, Strides engages in community and outreach partnerships to address the mental health needs of the young clients they serve and their families. This partnership represents a substantive investment in the Treat solution with approximately 70 per cent of the investment supporting recurrent licence revenue.
As Toronto's lead agency for infant, child and youth mental health, Strides works with service providers to design and implement system-level improvements that transform access to services, experience of services and mental health outcomes for Toronto's diverse communities. Treat will be implemented to support and enhance Strides's programs which include child and youth mental health, early intervention and community support, community engagement and development, and autism services.
Treat will also support Ontario's Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services' child and youth mental health business intelligence (CYMH BI) solution. The CYMH BI solution enables standardized data collection, integration, analysis and presentation of information about the delivery of CYMH core services, allowing for system planning and evidence informed decision-making.
"Our amalgamation in 2020 required us to find a solution to replace our three legacy client information systems (CIS). Following a comprehensive RFP [request for proposal] process, we selected Treat as our new CIS. It will enable us to meet our goals of using technology to enhance our clients' experiences and increase the efficiency of workflows so that employees can dedicate themselves to serving clients, which is their passion. Vitalhub's depth of experience and responsiveness provide us with confidence that we've selected the right technology and partner," said Janet McCrimmon, chief executive officer of Strides Toronto.
Dan Matlow, chief executive officer of Vitalhub, commented: "This is further validation of Treat being the leading case management system in Canada with the ability to support large-scale implementations while supporting unique government reporting requirements. We are seeing a trend of amalgamations in the community and social services sector and we believe we are strongly positioned as organizations upgrade their solutions as a result."
