Hawkesbury General Hospital, a 69-bed hospital about an hour east of Ottawa, is implementing an electronic health record (HER) solution. The healthcare facility purchased a system from Emergis Inc., one of the country's primary providers of electronic health records management software and systems. Installation of Emergis' Oacis system will begin this fall and marks the fourth hospital in Ontario to deploy the EHR system. "The deployment of Oacis is the culmination of our strategic IT vision and plan," the hospital's acting CEO and VP of financial and information services Luc Seguin said in a news release.
