Purkinje, in collaboration with France based partner Enovacom, win GACEQs call for tender to enable the sharing of patient data for healthcare organisations across the Quebec province
On 20th July 2017, the East Quebec Joint Procurement Group (GACEQ) selected Purkinje, in partnership with Enovacom, to deploy Enovacom’s unique integration agent in every healthcare provider organisation in Montreal. The aim is to enable the exchange of patient data easily between different establishments as well as within the organisations themselves.
Purkinje and Enovacom have worked closely together to offer a solution which optimises the exchange of health data between healthcare organisations’ IT systems in the Quebec province. Led by Montreal University Hospital (CHUM), the project is part of the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS) goal to bring services closer to the public and improve access to the network through an integrated services organisation. As such, the MSSS requirement is to unify and optimise the many IT systems used in healthcare and social services.
As a result, every establishment in Quebec will benefit from the interoperability platform or comprehensive integration engine flag-ship product from software editor, Enovacom. The Enovacom-Purkinje technological partnership will work on assisting the interoperability CDO team to deploy the solution gradually replacing the different integration agents currently being used. The solution will support the unification and IT systems optimisation projects, including the Cristal-Net electronic clinical records (ECR) project.
