Lady Dunn Health Centre, along with 23 other hospitals in northeastern Ontario, are launching the ONE initiative. ONE means one person, one record, one system. The ONE Initiative is a transformational project in Northeastern Ontario aimed at improving patient care through the implementation of a single electronic health information system (HIS) across the region . The health information system will go live in November 2023 to improve patient safety and transitions in care, with a shared electronic medical record.
Meditech Expanse is the electronic platform that will be used for this new health information system (SIS). The total cost of the project for the hospital is approximately 1.5 M. The Foundation is committed to raising $240,000 over the next 2 years. We’re on track with over $100,000 raised through the Catch the Ace, Wish and Giving Tuesday campaigns.
In addition to specific fundraising campaigns, the Foundation also supports long-term care, palliative care and cancer care.
Generous hearts – the key to a healthy future.
