The Montreal Region Health Authority has awarded Telus a $31.5-million contract to accelerate and expand the implementation of the Oacis Electronic Health Record solution to healthcare facilities across the region. The service includes an electronic clinical information system combined with a documentation imaging solution that will convert paper records and integrate them into a unified electronic patient record. Telus will be responsible for both project implementation and management. Oacis will be overlaid on top of existing infrastructure and systems to preserve existing investments. To achive this, the Oacis solution will interface with more than 50 systems requiring the development of 140 application interfaces to ensure a seamless transfer of information.
