Boston,MA - It was announced today that four users of xPert software have been awarded $185,000 from ImagineNation Outcomes Challenge for their continued use of clinical synoptic reporting. As the Outcomes Challenge draws to a close, North York General Hospital, Rouge Valley Health System, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, and Integrated Hospital Laboratories Service of Windsor-Essex (Windsor IHL) each received at least $25,000 for generating pathology reports created with mTuitive's xPert for Pathology. In fact the official tally breaks down as:
"Congratulations to these 4 sites," said mTuitive CEO John Murphy, "we're pleased that xPert isn't just keeping these hospitals compliant with national and industry reporting standards, but also helping them earn some much deserved funds and recognition for all their hard work." Mr. Murphy went on to praise ImagineNation Challenge and Canada Health Infoway (the financial backer of the initiative): "We also want to thank ImagineNation and Infoway for promoting the importance of synoptic reporting and rewarding users for recording health data in a structured way. Initiatives like ImagineNation Outcomes Challenges help spread the word that synoptic reporting's comprehensive data capture improves treatment and research."
Started in Winter of 2011, 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.
