Eight hospitals representing Montreal, Canada’s Centre Hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal (CHUM) and McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) are installing a document management and workflow solution from Cincinnati, Ohio-based Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. and Emergis Inc. (Longueuil, Quebec), a TELUS company.

The application integrates Streamline Health’s document management and chart completion workflow solution into Emergis’ EMR solution, which was rolled out in a prior phase across the various sites. According to the companies, the solution provides a view into a patient’s treatment history and enables physicians to electronically review and sign document-based clinical records.

CHUM and MUHC will be the first sites in Canada to deploy the solution.
