Savience is providing solutions that directly support The Ministry of Health and Long-Term 2017 Budget, and its associated 10-point action plan for Digital Health in Ontario and continues to push the boundaries of technology and change the face of healthcare.
Savience is providing hospitals with solutions to support these actions and do its part to strengthen the quality, effectiveness and accountability of the care delivered. Our work with Health Systems will stimulate innovation and growth for the economy through investments in digital health, reducing wait times, fast tracking access to care, and improving the patient experience.
Savience’s Market Strategy for Digital Health has been providing hospitals in Ontario with solutions that also support the principles of the patient-centered approach as set out in:
- Patients First: An Action Plan for Healthcare, February 2015
- Patients First – Reporting Back on the Proposal to Strengthen Patient-Centred Health Care in Ontario
In addition, increasing direct access by patients to health information and services was one of the most common themes heard by the ministry in stakeholder consultations on Digital Health. Such access is a priority for Savience and is a key component of the recent report “Value and Opportunities Created by Ontario’s Digital Health Assets”, prepared by Ed Clark in his capacity as the Premier’s Business Advisor and Chair of the Advisory Council on Government Assets.
This direction was recently further emphasized by the Honorable Dr. Eric Hoskins, Ontario Minister of Health and Long-term Care, in a recent speech at to the Empire Club of Canada.
