Cornwall Ontario Community Hospital (CCH) Using iPads For Better Outcomes & Registry Network

CFN -With the vision of “the best possible beginnings for life-long health” information gathered in the BORN (Better Outcomes and Registry Network) database will support the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MoHLTC), the Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health (PCMCH), Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) and Public Health Units of Ontario in measuring maternal-child health status and outcomes, by developing responsive health policies and improving evaluation and accountability.

The process to collect this data at CCH has just improved and has become more efficient by allowing the nurse conducting the assessments and patient history the ability to input the information directly into the BORN database. The information collected is extensive, separated in sections such as history and pregnancy, labour, birth regarding mother and birth regarding the child. Each section can have as many as 50 questions/areas to fill out.

By utilizing the portability of the IPad tablet and CCH’s wireless internet capabilities, data collection for BORN (Better Outcomes and Registry Network) database can be completed at the patients’ bedside, with more accuracy and opportunities for completion. “We are pleased to leverage our new Wifi infrastructure to include applications which can improve patient care” explains Mario Alibrando, Director of IT at CCH.

The old process included the nurse collecting the information manually on a paper form, then the clerk inserting the information onto the online database. If there were any questions missed they would simply be inserted blank, compromising the quality of the data collected. The transfer was also an area where possible errors could occur.

“The steps we are saving in this process will ensure efficiency and in turn improve the quality of the data, as well as the quality of the care provided in women’s and children’s health”

explained Kemi Ogundipe-Micho, Manager of this department.

Technology is a tool ! It can`t replace what we really need… doctors that are available and numerous in all specialties from peds to neurology….. this Ipad is the best way to share meaningful info fast and accurately..but We NEED DOCTORS… 1,000 less doctors across Ontario is shameful …give the medicine students breaks on tuition and offer them easier loan repaymetns and setup costs when they graduate and dump LHIN!!!!it sucks money where money is needed frontlines ..

Yes a great tool but they have already many tools
They are called the executive board and their management
Till they clean house Cornwall community hospital will remain a 3rd class hospital.

Their bilingual policy has cost them much donations ,well you can call it community hospital if you now hire out of province can you?

Remember cch serves the community not the other way around.

LMAO! Sometimes it is soooo hard to control thy tongue when you are dealing with stupid people. Concerned Citizen 2 you are so right about CCH! Let’s hire only French, give crappy service, cause many citizens living within walking distance vow never to use their services……then give’m IPADS. Ya, that’s what they need….French nurses with IPADS!!! That’ll solve the problem with health care in this province…..OY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
