TORONTO, April 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VitalHub Corp. (the “Company”) (TSXV: VHI) is pleased to announce the licensing of the TREAT EHR to the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital (HGH).
The Hawkesbury and District General Hospital sought leading edge functionality for coordination of care, best practice documentation and integrated functionality for standard reporting in their outpatient Mental Health programs.
The Ottawa Hospital, HGH’s regional partner, has licensed TREAT since 2012 for use in their outpatient mental health programs. As both these organizations are partnering to implement a new regional digital Health Information System in the acute care context, VitalHub was approached to explore the prospect of extending this alignment to their respective mental health programs.
In addition to HGH, the following 15 organizations are now eligible to sign a Participation Agreement allowing them to license the TREAT software: Renfrew Victoria Hospital, Saint Francis Memorial Hospital Ottawa Heart Institute, Family Health Team, Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Royal Ottawa Hospital, Cornwall Community Hospital, Montfort Hospital, Queensway Carleton Hospital, Kemptville Hospital, Arnprior Hospital, Pembroke General Hospital, Deep River District Hospital, Almonte General Hospital, and Glengarry Memorial Hospital.
Granting Eastern Ontario regional hospitals access to TREAT is aligned with the region’s IT consolidation initiative, as they are all involved in a single EHR rollout. The Amendment affords the Hospital’s regional partners and affiliates streamlined access to VitalHub’s TREAT software. The Hawkesbury and District General Hospital is the first participating partner, and the Company expects other regional partners and affiliated to follow suit in the next couple of years.
“HGH is pleased to become a licensee of TREAT for the care coordination, documentation and reporting in our Mental Health and Addictions program. Our research has indicated that this software program is a proven tool for documentation and integrated functionality. As part of the regional procurement process, we have benefited from the agreement in place with The Ottawa Hospital.” – Marcel LeClair, Vice-President Finance and Corporate Services HGH
“We are starting to see more regions and Provinces looking to integrate their EHR solutions so they can have common solutions for easier integration and support initiatives. This is a good example of such an initiative.” – Dan Matlow, President & CEO VitalHub
