VitalHub Continues Expansion of the B Care EHR Platform in the Province of Manitoba With a Sale to Eden Health Care Services
TORONTO, Jan. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VitalHub Corp. (the “Company” or “VitalHub”) (TSXV: VHI) is pleased to announce that Eden Health Care Services (“Eden”) has licensed VitalHub's B Care Electronic Health Record software (“EHR").
Eden Health Care Services—a mental health center in southern Manitoba—has licensed VitalHub’s B Care software, providing caregivers with real-time access to critical patient data, enabling improvements in the delivery and quality of care. Eden has committed to multi-year termed SaaS licensing contract, licensing the core B Care platform and the Community and Advanced Care Planning modules.
In addition, Eden has licensed the RAI-MH and CMH assessments which are fully integrated within the B Care solution. B Care and the RAI-MH and CMH assessments will be used to support their inpatient mental health and community housing programs. Eden’s clinical services are delivered within a multi-disciplinary approach, for which the B Care EHR provides a best-in-class ability for patient information sharing, team and care coordination and communication, leading to improved care delivery.
“We are excited to implement the B Care EHR to support our continued focus on high quality care delivery. We chose B Care following our review of viable solutions and having worked with other agencies within the province that have been using it for many years. B Care’s support of interRAI instruments was a very important determiner of our decision to partner with VitalHub,” said Kym Kaufmann, CEO at Eden Health Care Services. “We have a strong belief in the value of inter-RAI and its standardized assessments, and view B Care as an essential component in our commitment toward achieving the highest quality of care for our patients.”
“We are pleased to continue to expand our reach and footprint in Manitoba,” said Dan Matlow, CEO of VitalHub Corp. “With each additional contract, we see continued demonstration of the value of our technology solutions, and reinforcement of our growth strategy as we scale the business. We look forward to working with Eden Health Care services, and toward continuing to support care centres with industry-leading products.”
With this sale, Eden joins Selkirk Mental Health Centre, Northern Regional Health Authority, and KidThink as organizations in Manitoba that are using B Care.
