2021 Celebrations: Transformation & Technology

FEATURE STORY

HHS’ new hospital information system will be ‘game-changing’ for patients and their caregivers

Hamilton Health Sciences is less than a year away from launching Epic, a fully digital health information system that will enable more integrated, patient-centred health care. Read more.

In 2021, Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) continued to transform the way we deliver care to achieve our vision of Best Care for All. We officially launched Project Odyssey, our journey to implementing a new world-class electronic hospital information system called Epic. Its enhanced communications capabilities, modern patient portal, and capacity to measure and analyze data will fundamentally change the care provided by HHS, in our facilities and in our community.

We also continued our work to renew critical and rapidly evolving diagnostic tools, such as X-ray machines, MRIs and CT scanners to ensure that we remain a world-class healthcare organization, and can optimize our use of Epic when the system launches in June 2022.

The stories in this section demonstrate our commitment to being at the forefront of our field in all areas related to patient safety and care, and research and innovation.
