In response to COVID-19, UHN has re-activated its Executive COVID-19 IMS (Incident Management System) table and we are meeting on a twice weekly basis.

Epic is a dynamic and powerful health information system that will be a needed tool to transform UHN's clinical mission for both patients and staff. Preparing to use Epic includes ensuring we have the right hardware necessary for optimal benefit from EPIC. From larger monitors to barcode scanners to label printers and beyond, UHN has invested in new equipment that is currently being deployed and tested through a process called Technical Dress Rehearsal. Also this month, members of the Synapse team will be visiting units at every site to demonstrate some of the new devices. The End-User Device Roadshow is a valuable opportunity for staff to get hands-on experience and ask questions about some of the devices. Learn more about the roadshow here.
Last week, the Michener Institute of Education at UHN signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the province of Nova Scotia indicating the intent to enable students from that province to enrol in some of Michener's academic programs. This MOU aims to address the shortage of health human resources in Nova Scotia and across Canada, which represents the most acute challenge to the viability and capacity of our health care system. As Nova Scotia's Minister of Advanced Education said in last week's news release, "The Michener Institute is a world-renowned training provider that has an impressive track-record." I congratulate the Michener team on achieving this partnership and helping the rest of Canada benefit from Michener's unique expertise.
