  In the Fall of 2009, Health Canada ruled that patient management software is considered a Class II medical device. Software vendors and public sector organizations alike must now insure their quality management systems meet the ISO-13485 standard. ecGroup can help your organization comply with this Canadian regulation.  Get more info here.

Successful Electronic Health Records implementations require solid IT architecture, strong project management, and effective clinician engagement. ecGroup is able to provide informed, insightful advice to public and private sector clients regarding EHR technology, implementation strategy, and project execution. In addition, we have been engaged to help draft successful RFP responses.

Patient Safety and Quality of Care are related issues that are both positively impacted by the deployment of EHRs.  ecGroup’s principal consultant, Derek Ritz, was one of Canada’s delegates to an international Patient Safety and Quality Task Force; he was a co-author of the Task Force’s initial report. ecGroup can assist and advise health delivery organizations who are undertaking patient safety and/or quality initiatives.

Improving the efficiency of a care delivery process will have the impact of creating capacity or reducing delivery cost — or both. Through the application of techniques such as Lean, Six Sigma and Theory of Constraints, significant, sustained reductions in wasted time and resources can be achieved. ecGroup can help healthcare delivery organizations engineer better care.
