Innovation plays a vital role in improving healthcare delivery, patient satisfaction and patient outcomes. Advancements in medical technology allow our healthcare providers to better diagnose, treat and care for their patients.
Niagara Health, a multi-site care provider offering a wide range of inpatient and outpatient programs and services in Ontario’s Niagara Region, is on the leading edge of developing and using innovative systems. Some of these innovations may not be as readily visible as the latest state-of-the-art equipment might be to patients and yet it makes all the difference in the world when it comes to care.
Fostering a culture of extraordinary innovation at Niagara Health is a key direction of our ambitious strategic plan. Efforts so far are making a significant contribution in our work to create extraordinary experiences for our patients, their families and our teams.
Among the successes, Niagara Health is improving patient satisfaction, creating a more seamless system of care, enhancing communication among our multidisciplinary teams and improving workflow.
"Our people at Niagara Health are making a difference. The teamwork, fresh thinking and innovation taking place are having an important impact on the care we provide our patients," says Niagara Health President Dr. Suzanne Johnston. “An added benefit of this commitment to continuous quality improvement is our success in recruiting great people to work and volunteer at our hospital.”
Here are just a few examples of how our innovative systems are enhancing the patient experience and supporting our healthcare teams
