Congratulations to CIHI for their Canadian Health Informatics Award nomination!

Momentum Healthware is proud to echo that as part of the project team for Care Planning Tools: Changing Practice Among Alberta First Nations Communities, CIHI was recently nominated for the Canadian Health Informatics Association 2016 Awards in the Innovation and Care Delivery category.

An integrated solution was developed to allow the electronic capture of clinical data, providing just-in-time information of clinical outputs for immediate care planning. The goal is to reduce wait times for assessment and to increase access to and seamless delivery of health care services in First Nations communities, on par with the average Albertan. 

To develop this pilot, CIHI worked with the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch of Health Canada, Momentum Healthware, the First Nations Alberta Technical Services Advisory Group, interRAI, Alberta Health Services and Alberta Health.  This project has demonstrated excellent collaboration among First Nations representatives, provincial and community health services, and vendors to implement this integrated solution.

We wish CIHI and the project team the best of luck at the upcoming Canadian Health Informatics Awards 2016 Gala, being held on Tuesday, June 7, as part of the e-Health 2016 Conference in Vancouver, B.C.
