Published: Sep 08, 2010
OTTAWA, Sept. 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In an effort to better connect laboratories in Ontario, Cerner is working with The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) and two other members of the Eastern Ontario Regional Laboratory Association (EORLA), the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and the Cornwall Community Hospital (CCH), to implement an enhanced automated lab system that will connect the three laboratories to local hospitals. The initial phase of the project will see all three hospitals implement the Cerner PathNet® Laboratory Information System (LIS). The Cerner PathNet solution offers clinicians comprehensive, fully integrated technology to automate the operational and managerial sides of the laboratory and will connect laboratory information with the patient's electronic health record (EHR).
