We will present an electronic record
solution that supports both provincial and pan-Canadian info-structure
directions. This solution is applicable not only to individual
hospitals, but also to entire healthcare regions. We will discuss how
software from different vendors brought together by Sierra Systems
works together to meet the information needs of clinicians and
healthcare management, as well as providing wireless data access. Our
approach utilizes the Oracle Health Transaction Base (HTB) providing a
component-based solution that consolidates patient, provider and
clinical data as well as business rules for entire organizations and
health regions. The HTB combines leading-edge technologies from Oracle
itself as well as from partner vendors. In
addition we will discuss the implementation services necessary to
successfully deploy these solutions in a clinical setting.
We will demonstrate Orions Concerto
web portal software as it is used to access and display patient
records as part of the Oracle Health Transaction Base (HTB) solution. This
will include a live demonstration of wireless clinician access to lab
results and patient documents, using new generation Hewlett-Packard
Tablet PCs. More information on Orion and their partners can be found
