VITALHUB ANNOUNCES DEPLOYMENT OF PATIENT FLOW SOLUTION TO SUPPORT THE MANAGEMENT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IN WINDSOR AND ESSEX COUNTY (SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO)
Vitalhub Corp. will be deploying its patient flow solution, utilizing its Oculys Performance technology, for five hospitals in Windsor and Essex county to assist them in their efforts to plan for and manage patient flow in the face of a possible Covid-19 pandemic.
This announcement comes on the heels of an additional request that the company had received from its clients to assist them in preparing their hospitals for the creation and implementation of assessment centres -- to accommodate the anticipated influx of patients being assessed and treated for Covid-19.
The configuration of the Oculys solution has started and will be deployed immediately, beginning with updating the configurations to provide real-time and accurate information about the patients being treated for Covid-19 to protect staff and optimize care. The solution is being rolled out at Windsor Regional Hospital's two campuses (Met and Ouellette) as well as at Hotel-Dieu Grace HealthCare, Bluewater Health, Erie Shores Health Care and Chatham-Kent Health Alliance.
"Our government and health care leadership across the province of Ontario are taking strong and decisive action that supports a strategy of containment of this virus through the early identification and isolation of cases," said Dan Matlow, chief executive officer of Vitalhub.
"Organizationally and as a region we are taking steps to contain, control and manage this pandemic and working with our existing vendors to receive timely support in a situation that is evolving quickly is important. Each of the Windsor and Essex county hospitals have worked with the Oculys solutions to support improvements in patient flow and operational visibility for a number of years. The transparency and visibility that the solution provides is one that we are able to further leverage in support of managing Covid-19," said Karen McCullough, chief operating officer and chief nursing executive of Windsor Regional Hospital.
