ITAC AND OSLER SPONSORED HEALTH IT EVENT
Title: Preparing for eHealth Transformation Projects and the New Infrastructure Ontario Approach: Lessons Learned and Models for Success
Location: Old Mill, 21 Old Mill Road, Brule "A", Toronto
Date: October 21, 2009
Time: 8:30am to 11:30am
The health care system in Ontario is undergoing a transformation which includes the procurement and implementation of large information technology infrastructure projects. The province has outlined a $2.3 billion agenda to address immediate clinical priorities and to build infrastructure which will provide the foundation for a province-wide electronic health record system. Infrastructure Ontario will be handling the procurement for these large projects. Infrastructure Ontario normally uses a Design Build Finance & Maintain (DBFM) procurement approach for its projects - an approach familiar to bidders in other forms of infrastructure projects but new and challenging to most ITAC members.
In addition to centrally procured projects, hospitals and Local Health Integration Networks are proceeding aggressively to build out information technology infrastructure at the local and regional levels. Many of these projects are funded by project specific funds from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and Canada Health Infoway.
