The Ottawa Hospital Success Story

Company profile

The Ottawa Hospital is a 1,149-bed non-profit, academic health sciences center in Ottawa, Canada. It serves 1.3 million people across Eastern Ontario. The Ottawa Hospital was looking to improve patient safety and quality of care by giving all providers within the hospital and throughout the community immediate access to patient records. At the same time, it wanted to be a responsible steward of its financial resources.
