Boston, MA - mTuitive, Inc. congratulates two of its customers - Integrated Hospital Laboratories (IHL) Service of Windsor-Essex and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre - on winning 2nd and 3rd place, respectively, in the Trailblazer Award for the ImagineNation Outcomes Challenge in the area of Clinical Synoptic Reporting. It was announced today by the Challenge's sponsor, Canada Health Infoway, that the two sites were awarded prizes and funds for their Trailblazer Plans outlining how they plan on implementing, integrating and expanding clinical synoptic reporting at their facilities.
IHL Service of Windsor-Essex is located in Windsor, ON while Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre is in Toronto, ON. Both sites currently use mTuitive's xPert for Pathology to capture structured data for their cancer pathology cases while adhering to industry and national standards for synoptic reporting. Sunnybrook also uses mTuitive's Agile Author to create their own customized synoptic reporting solutions. Not only does the award provide recognition of all of the hard work and dedication IHL Service of Windsor-Essex and Sunnybrook have shown to excellent synoptic reporting, but it also comes with a prize of $20,000 and $10,000 for each of the sites, respectively.
"We are very excited about finishing second in the Clinical Synoptic Reporting category for the Trailblazer awards," a representative of IHL Service of Windsor-Essex stated. "Working with mTuitive has not only been professionally rewarding but has also proved to be financially rewarding too. We look forward to continuing to promote our solution using mTuitive software."
The ImagineNation Outcomes Challenge aims to "accelerate the use and spread of innovative solutions in health care information and communication technologies...with the potential to improve health care quality and the patient experience in Canada." Health providers are encouraged to sign up for the outcomes challenge by filling out a short application and submitting a brief video detailing the method used to conform to synoptic reporting standards.
There are subsequent awards handed out throughout the two year process. Sites need only fill out the application and monitor usage of the solutions - the more people use the reporting solution, the more likely the sites are to receive the awards. And for those sites already using an mTuitive solution, expanding the number of users or adopting other mTuitive synoptic reporting solutions (like our Gross pathology, Dx pathology or OpNote products) will also help them potentially win the award. Registration is still open and sites are still able to participate in the challenge and possibly win awards and recognition for their synoptic reporting.
Please note: mTuitive will not directly participate in the financial awards provided by the program. mTuitive is not associated with ImagineNation Challenges or with Canada Health Infoway.
Congratulations again to IHL Service of Windsor-Essex and Sunnybrook for their well-earned victories and recognition!
