In the hospital, a prescriber must manually write every medication ordered for a patient on a chart prior to being processed by the Pharmacy and administered by the nurse. Our current system is paper-based and very inefficient. The new scanning system will allow the unit clerk to transmit the patient’s medication order to the pharmacist for review and authorization in real time thus eliminating unnecessary delays. Medication can be prepared and administered to the patient in a more timely manner allowing us to provide fast and efficient service, which is critical in providing the best care possible for patients.

Bridletowne Neighbourhood Centre (proposed kidney disease management hub)

The centre, which will be built in partnership with the YMCA of Greater Toronto, has received enthusiastic support from the provincial government and other stakeholders. The partnership with the YMCA will allow the centre to provide an integrated suite of services embracing not only disease diagnosis, treatment, and management but also educational and other programs for promoting disease prevention and healthy lifestyles.
