Toronto (June 11, 2007) - Tackling some of the toughest issues in healthcare today, University Health Network has won a prestigious national award for creating unique and sustainable solutions to improve patient flow, ultimately reducing wait times and improving access to Emergency Departments.
Sponsored by 3M and the Canadian College of Health Service Executives, the annual 3M Health Care Quality Team Awards recognize projects with proven outcomes and teamwork which create significant and sustained change within an organization.
University Health Network (UHN) won the award for its Emergency – General Internal Medicine Transformation Project, consisting of framework that ensures care is well-coordinated, seamless and standardized from admission to discharge across the three hospital sites. More than 200 clinicians and multiple community partners teamed up with a project management team from Shared Information Management Services (SIMS), the information management and technology department for UHN, to implement the multi-faceted project.
"The early success of the two-year project has been due in large part to the dedication and collaborative work of many staff, physicians and project team members from many disciplines from the Toronto Western and Toronto General Hospitals," said Dr. Bob Bell, President and CEO of University Health Network.
This is the most comprehensive, complex and far-reaching initiative UHN has undertaken in years. Examples of the project's successes include:
Shared Information Management Services (SIMS) is the information management and technology partnership between nine health care organizations in the Greater Toronto Area. With similar values, these organizations commit to identifying, planning and implementing joint initiatives that will contribute to a coordinated and integrated health care delivery system.
