As a Canadian leader in digital health innovation and Canada Health Infoway award winner, LifeLabs’ wholly-owned subsidiary Excelleris Technologies is responsible for pioneering e-health solutions that help bring patient care into the 21st century. Through the creation of secure patient web portals, my results in Ontario and my ehealth in B.C, we currently provide more than 2.5 million Canadians with fast, easy online access to their lab results, empowering patients to take an active role in in managing their own health.
Excelleris is also delivering e-health solutions to the broader health system. For instance, in 2016 Excelleris began working with Velante, an organization established by the New Brunswick Medical Society to support the adoption of electronic medical records through the province’s healthcare system. Together we are providing an e-health solution for a common challenge in health care – moving to paperless. Prior to. Excelleris’ involvement, patient test results in New Brunswick were available in a provincial repository; however many community physicians are not connected to the repository, and therefore results were frequently sent to physicians’ offices via paper mail or fax.
As a leading e-health provider for more than 15 years in British Columbia, with broad experience integrating clinical systems, Excelleris offers New Brunswick a proven, reliable solution to this problem. Today, using a fully automated solution, doctors have immediate, easy access to all the patient diagnostic lab test history they need for their patients’ care.
“At Excelleris, we’re constantly asking ourselves, how can we use technology to address the roadblocks to modernize health care and improve patients’ health?” Stephan Mueller, Director, Information Technology. “Looking into the future, we are poised and ready to help even more Canadians achieve improved health outcomes.”
