Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital to Deploy Novari Surgical Waiting List Management System

KINGSTON, ON, February 8, 2022 /CNW/ – Novari Health has announced the signing of an agreement with Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital (PSFDH) to implement its surgical wait list management and electronic booking technology.

Novari ATC software is implemented at Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital. The technology is delivered as software as a service (SaaS) to the hospital and all surgical practices. The system will provide these surgeons and their office staff with access to a standardized electronic wait list management system and the ability to electronically coordinate the scheduling of surgeries and procedures with the hospital. The software enhances the ability to collaborate and manage consolidated patient waiting lists for surgery as well as support a regional view of demand for surgical services. This implementation contributes to strengthening the collective surgical waiting list management capacities of participating hospitals in the South-East sub-region of Ontario.

The Ontario Ministry of Health, Ontario Health and hospitals across the province are working to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on patients awaiting surgery. Having a modern waitlist management system complements these efforts and will help the PSFDH manage its COVID-19 related surgical backlog.

Novari Health’s innovative and unique access-to-care technologies are in service or being implemented in dozens of hospitals and regional health authorities in four Canadian provinces.

PSFDH is committed to investing in technology that helps leverage improvements in patient safety, promotes efficiency and improves throughput. Our investment in Novari is a strategic decision to improve our ability to better manage our valuable operating room resources to improve access and timely care to our community. As we continue to tackle the surgical backlog caused by this terrible pandemic, we are excited to embrace Novari’s technology as a way to improve our ability to provide lifesaving surgical services to our community..”Michael CohenPresident and CEO, Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital

“The urgency of building the capacity to manage waiting lists at the PSFDH and in the hospitals of the Canada was highlighted by the cancellation of tens of thousands of surgeries due to the pandemic. These cancellations have compounded the surgical backlogs and associated wait times that our technology is uniquely designed to help improve.”John SinclairCPHIMS-CA, President, Novari Health
