TORONTO, Sept. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VitalHub Corp. (the “Company”) (TSXV: VHI) is pleased to announce that upon successful completion of the first phase of the project, it has entered phase two of the B Care EHR implementation for the Salvation Army Toronto Grace Health Centre (“TGHC”).
Initially announced in early January 2019, the project is being deployed in three stages, with TGHC having initially committed to phase one, with the intent of deploying subsequent phases over 18-24 months. VitalHub has successfully delivered phase one of the project, with TGHC going live with the implementation of the ADT (Admission, Discharge and Transfer), EMPI (Enterprise Master Patient Index) and various interfaces to third party systems.
Phases two and three will focus on the implementation of Clinical Documentation, Electronic Assessments, the deployment of the Pharmacy Information System, Order Entry and eMAR (Electronic Medication Administration Record).
Phase two of the project include software licensing revenue of $406k, maintenance/support revenue of $100k, and professional services revenue of approximately $176k. Phase two deliverables will include Clinical Documentation, Daily Sheets Module, Scheduling Module, Full Pharmacy Management System, including Medication Orders, InterRAI Assessment (RAI-MDS). The implementation of phase two will result in the decommissioning of the WORx Pharmacy System and Goldcare Clinical Documentation solution currently in use.
The revenue associated with the three phases of the project is anticipated to exceed $1M, with approximately 60% allocated toward software licensing.
