Hospital project is year's best

  • Print

A three-year project that created a new standardized electronic records system for admitting, discharging and transferring hospital patients has been named Manitoba's best-managed project for 2014.

The Provincial Admission, Discharge and Transfer (ADT) Project beat out four other contenders for this year's award from the Project Management Institute (PMI) of Manitoba.

The winner was announced at an awards luncheon held Tuesday at the RBC Winnipeg Convention Centre.

This year's competition attracted more than double the number of entrants than in 2013, when there were two.

This year's winning project was a joint effort by Manitoba eHealth and Online Business Systems. Debbie Honke, project director with Manitoba eHealth's Project Management Office, said about 150 people worked on the project between the time it was launched and its completion last fall, including staff from 13 Manitoba hospitals.

The project's goal was to create a standardized electronic records system, with a centralized computer system and a centralized database, for all patient admissions, discharges and transfers. Honke said all 13 hospitals are now using the new system, and it's working well.

She said the long-term goal is to have every hospital in the province using the same electronic system for managing ADT services within the next two to three years.

Honke said having every hospital using the system should provide a more consistent patient experience and improve patient care and safety.
