WATERLOO, Ontario, Canada -
GoldCare Inc., market leader in healthcare management software, is pleased to announce its electronic health record will be implemented at five Children’s Treatment Centres (CTCs) in northern Ontario. This brings the benefits of electronic charting and communication to a total of 18 CTCs using GoldCare across the province.
The adoption of the GoldCare solution in Ontario began with the Children’s Treatment Network of Simcoe-York, which was formed in 2005 to improve families’ access to care by better coordinating services for 4,500 children with multiple disabilities. Twelve Southern Ontario CTCs went live on the GoldCare platform simultaneously in June 2012.
GoldCare’s innovative community care information management system is credited with delivering efficiencies and standardization in reporting, reducing the administrative burden on families and coordinating the availability of services across Ontario’s child rehabilitation system, ultimately leading to better outcomes.
The Northern Ontario CTCs project is comprised of One Kids Place/La place des Enfants, North Bay; Children’s Rehabilitation Centre Algoma, Sault Ste. Marie; Children’s Treatment Centre, Sudbury; Cochrane Temiskaming Children’s Treatment Centre, Timmins; and George Jeffrey Children’s Centre, Thunder Bay.
Earlier this year, GoldCare worked with the Northern Ontario CTCs project teams to define requirements for conversions, interfaces and enhancements. The project is expected to go live in the fall of 2014.
Paula Hucko, President of GoldCare, says, “GoldCare is enabling the CTCs to do common outcome measurement and plan better programs and services for more children through reduced wait times, as well as increasing capacity and providing the required services when and where they are needed. It’s very exciting to collaborate on this project and a privilege to witness such life-changing results facilitated by a timely, accurate and shared information system.”
Jennifer Churchill, Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario Association of Children’s Rehabilitation Services (OACRS), parent organization of the CTCs, adds, “Once again, our partnership with GoldCare has validated the benefits of a collaborative approach to results-driven technology. The addition of five more CTCs using the GoldCare system allows us to more easily share and exchange information and realize a truly integrated approach to care planning among all professionals involved in a child’s care.”
GoldCare is a leading healthcare technology software provider for community, home and residential care sectors. An integrated approach to care management and support, and dedication to industry-advancing solutions are just some of the reasons why GoldCare is used by hundreds of organizations across Canada, Australia and New Zealand. www.mygoldcare.com
